A very aromatic medium leaf tea with a round and spicy bouquet. Lively and complex. High grown in the foothills of the Himalayas close to Darjeeling is this truly fantastic tea. Not as well known as Darjeeling but equal in quality and freshness Nepalese tea beginning to make inroads to the Western market. The bushes here were planted later than those in Darjeeling resulting in a younger character and leaf. The hills made famous by Ghurkha armies posses the same quality making tools as those of Darjeeling - the height the soil the temperature the air and rainfall all add to the flavour and quality of this tea.
