Lhotse Black Tea - Toasted Pecan | Fig | Buckwheat

Lhotse is a summer-picked, hand-rolled black tea from the Jasbirey village. It is the perfect morning tea with notes of toasted pecan, fig, and buckwheat. Its aromatic amber liquor develops notes of bran and red plum as it is enjoyed.

These rare organic artisan black teas are hand-rolled followed by mechanical rolling to give a fine twist, it is completely oxidized sometime over 26 hours at 6500 feet elevation. The constant flow of cold mist supplied by nature at this altitude makes the oxidation (natural fermentation) process extremely slow which allows a gradual change of Polyphenols to flavonoids (theaflavins and thearubigins) to the extent that it is almost equal in ratio. Once the desired color and nose (flavor) is attained during this natural oxidation process this tea is dried slowly and matured with time and perfection.
