Himalayan Golden Black
Global Tea Championship Winner
1st Place Winner, Black Tea
Himalayan Golden Black was a 1st Place Winner of the highly-competitive "Black Tea" category of the Global Tea Championship Awards. It is truly an outstanding black tea that reflects all of nature's goodness in a cup.
This highly sought after black tea is crafted by Himalayan monsoons and the fertile soils of Sandakphu in eastern Nepal. It's one of those small pockets of the world where the conditions are perfect for tea growing. After plucking, the leaves are 25 percent withered, then rolled in mechanical rollers. The tea is then placed in a shaping machine and further dried, producing uniformly curled leaves.
Tea producers from around the world came to this small artisan farm in Nepal to see how it was done.
Like a fine wine, this tea has a lovely balance of flavors: toasty and malty, with notes of stonefruit and honey. We're so lucky to get it and can't wait to share it with you!
