Himalaya Royale Black*
This exquisitely crafted black tea is an impressive and complex beverage for the true tea connoisseur.
The dry leaf is twisted and mostly dark brown with a sprinkling of lighter leaves. The bouquet is flowers and chocolate. The liquor has a deep, round body is combined with notes of tonka bean (vanilla, cherry, almond, and something spicy—a bit like cinnamon) and florals. The soft aftertaste fills the mouth and remains there for a quite long period of time.

Additional information: High in the Himalayas in the eastern region of Nepal lies the tiny but extraordinarily beautiful Jun Chiyabari estate. The name Jun Chiyabari means “Moonlit Tea Garden.” The tea comes from small plots between 1,650-2,100 metres above sea level, where the plants grow slowly but with intense flavours. Within and between these small plots on the hilly slopes are forests, bamboo groves, rocky boulders, brooks and streams. This is the terroir which makes Jun Chiyabari teas unique. The plots are naturally farmed, and leaves are plucked by hand by locals. The tea is processed using a combination of traditional and modern techniques with a focus on small-batch and artisan lots. The factory manager, Morris Orchard, is a third generation Nepali tea planter whose grandfather came from Britain to plant tea. Morris has a great respect for the land, the tea, and the small team he works with.
