Our buyers traveled to Darjeeling and Nepal during the first flush season and personally selected a compelling range of teas picked in the peak days of early spring. Himalayan Spring is a lightly oxidized black tea, crafted by skillful withering, delicate Britannia rolling, and gentle oven baking. The cool temperatures at high elevation in the Himalayas inhibits tea leaf oxidation, so while Himalayan Spring is technically a black tea you will notice the leaves are pear green in color. The artisans at the Jun Chiyabari tea garden are exceptional at capturing the freshness of spring in this tea, maximizing its fresh flowery character. Lot J7 has luscious notes of orange blossom honey, oats, and apricot. Compare against our full range of Nepal and Darjeeling teas for a captivating and delicious flight through the Himalayas.
