Himalayan Spring is a very fresh, flowery lightly oxidized First Flush black tea from the Himalayas. They picked the fresh, tender leaves in the first weeks of the harvest. Wildflowers, hay, chamomille, and some nice nuts so we got an amazing black tea.
This year we chose two First Flush black tea from the Jun Chiyabari tea garden, it is a great experience to compare them. We love the flowery notes of this outstanding black tea, but we also fell in love with the Himalayan Early Spring 2022 FF‘s citrusy aroma and its elegant, uplifting mood.
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.
Steamed gaiwan: herbal hay, wildflowers, citrus
Tastes, feeling: It starts with rounded wildflower notes, like chamomile, and a hint of mint, cashew, and pine nuts. Pleasant citrus flavors at the end of the sip. Opens the eyes, awakens softly, inspires.
