NEPAL ILAM Organic 2016

On the Nepalese side of the majestic Himalayas in the Antu Valley, “just over the hill” from the famous Darjeeling region, enterprising Nepalese planters have managed without British know-how to bring a full-value, high-mountain black tea to the tea world. The brown-green uniformly rolled leaves with a high content of silver tips are full of aroma and have an unobtrusively astringent, captivatingly flowery taste.
