Nepalese tea stands at a crossroads, both in geography and process. Surrounded by China and India, orthodox production in this mountainous country is relatively new; the Jun Chiyabari tea garden, which makes this black tea, was founded in 2001. Utilizing cultivars from nearby Darjeeling, and techniques from Taiwan and Japan, this organic farm crafts unique varieties.
Harvested at elevations near 6,000 feet, this leaf has undergone a long period of withering, careful rolling and oxidation. The result is a cup reminiscent of a Chinese black tea, but with more soft fruitiness. The rich fragrance of brown sugar and black cherries round out this sweet and fragrant tea.
Tasting Notes: brown sugar, black cherry, wood
Harvest Season: Summer 2020

I am in love with the aroma of this tea. The flavor profile is completely accurate. Mild but earthy and intriguing. This will be my personal treat!
This is my go to Black Tea right now. I prefer a very earthy Black Tea and this perfectly fits the bill from taste to smell.
