Himalayan Black is typically harvested and crafted in the summer. This lot is a special spring offering with chocolatey nuance and is processed with techniques inspired by the tea master producers of East Asia. Following the steps of a traditional black tea, the Himalayan Black undergoes withering, a lengthy rolling, followed by oxidation and drying. The careful intensive rolling coaxes out a unique collection of earthy aromas. The resulting note is semi-dark chocolate bar with a hint of tobacco. Compare against our full range of Nepal and Darjeeling teas for a captivating and delicious flight through the Himalayas.
