first flush black tea
Jun Chiyabari tea garden
Dhankuta, Himalaya, Nepal
Himalayan Spring is a soft, first-flush black tea.
Thanks to the early plucking, young green leaves and the many small buds, this tea is outstandingly light-some and bracing, with an almost green-tea-like ambiance. It has a bouquet of butter and freshly-baked bread with a hint of citrus, that reappears in its taste too. Finally, a mildly sour, nutty aftertaste supplements this tea-experience.
Youthful and elegant black tea with a great refreshing effect even in the warmest days of summer.
Every Nepali tea we have originates from the organic Jun Chiyabari tea garden, located in the Himalayas around 1800 meters above sea level. Due to this clear-out area, in every tea there lies a deep elation.
