This black tea offers an enchantment of flavors from the Nepal mountains. *Organic
Origin: This tea is grown in Ilam, Nepal at about 1800m (5900ft) elevation at the bottom of Mt. Kanchanjunga, the third highest peak of the world and in close proximity to Darjeeling.
The tea leaves are grown by small farmers and then processed in the Shangri-La Factory under the supervision of Mr. Mainali who prides himself on a great relationship with his tea farmers. He provides support through organic certification and implementation to produce the highest quality of tea leaves possible. This collaboration results in an exceptional tea.
Profile: The Himalayan terroir and harsh climates result in slow leaf growth and help create complex aromas and notes of tropical fruits. This June-harvested tea contains a profusion of golden tips and offers a bouquet of caramel, malt, muscatel, honey and peach notes in a medium body.
