First Flush black tea
cold brewed “The Champagne of Nepal”
Jun Chiyabari tea garden
Dhankuta, Himalaya, Nepal
Himalayan Spring is a refreshing, early-spring-harvest black tea from Nepal.
‘FF’ stands for First Flush tea, which means it was plucked at the very beginning of the Spring harvest period. Thanks to this, the tea mostly consists of fine buds and young green leaves which give a remarkably light-some and bracing ambiance to the tea. It is quite fragrant, and the taste is characterised by an IPA-like spiciness with mild notes of butter and walnut. It has a long lasting, acacia aftertaste.
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.
