A smooth and comforting aromatic black tea made from beautiful golden buds. This tea produces a deliciously sweet liquor of chestnuts and honey that leaves a creamy finish on the palate.
Milan Kumari operates the only women led tea estate and factory in Nepal and we couldn’t be prouder to be supporting this incredible tea maker in a predominantly male dominated industry. It is important to understand that in Nepal growers are not always part of the process to finish their harvested tea. Often this raw tea material is sold at auction to be sent to a producer or wholesaler to finish so this is also a significant part of the story.
This tea has been sourced by our outstanding Nepalese supplier Jeni Dodd Tea who travels throughout the year to Nepal to meet and continue building these relationships. You can read more about Jeni in our Tealosophy.
