Nepal Imperial Black
Jun Chiyabari Tea Factory – Hile, Nepal
1st Flush – Spring 2020
नेपाल शाही काले
Another great Certified Organic black tea from Jun Chiyabari! Processed in small batches from leaves grown by family farms near the town of Hile in the Dhankuta region of Nepal. This tea is made in a style similar to many Chinese black teas. Highly oxidized and rich in flavor, this Jun Chiyabari original is bolder and darker than many traditional Nepalese black teas, but unmistakably born from Himalayan air and soil.
Large, twisted, black leaves brew up a full bodied cup with sweet notes of malt and dark chocolate. A longer oxidation period in the Chinese style of black tea making makes this quite a versatile tea. It can be both a great breakfast style tea (that will hold up to milk and sugar) and/or holds enough complexity to enjoy on it’s own.
This is our first flush pick for 2020! A beautiful top grade for the season.
$4.00 – $80.00
