A perfectly balanced everyday black tea from the Jun Chiyabari tea garden in Nepal. Himalayan Classic is a "2nd Flush" black tea, meaning it was harvested when the bushes have had more time to adjust to warmer days and brighter sunshine of early summer. The flavors are deep and complex, set against the classic background of fruity-floral Himalayan character that we enjoy so much from this region.

Tasting Notes: Lightly malty and smooth with nectar-like flavors of apricot, lychee, wildflower honey and sweet citrus peel dryness that linger in the finish of this easy-drinking cup.
Ingredients: Organic black tea.
Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon (4 grams) per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 3 minutes (1st infusion), 4-5 minutes (2nd infusion)
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
