This exquisite organic black tea grows in the Ilam region of Nepal, a stone’s throw from the famous tea growing region of Darjeeling, India. High up in the Himalayas, this black tea is produced in sometimes harsh climates, resulting in a slow growth process which allows for beautifully complex characteristics. It steeps to a medium body, with floral aromas, a touch of malt, and a smooth aftertaste.
