From Capital Teas

Discover this golden black organic tea originating from the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal. Each smell and sip of this tea, a cousin of the famous Darjeelings, allows one to sense the fresh mountain air and crystal clear waters of the amazing Nepalese terroir. The newest young tea leaves are delicately hand-twisted, then oxidized, releasing an elegant aroma and taste. Himalayan Gold Organic exhibits notes of vanilla and creamy caramel. It brews to a warm amber liquor with a most pleasant fragrance.

sipdown! (211) mmmm another fine tea from nicole I think i accidentally over steeped this a little but i can still get the flavours in this tea. I really like this one, though if i didn’t mess up steeping this, it’s a little stringent for me. or…because it’s a cousin to darjeelinsg, that’s what i’m getting here. What i love about this tea are the under notes happening here. I cant quite place the taste but it’s somehow familiar to me. either that or lack of sleep has made me disfunctional..but at least i’m getting some stuff done..even if it’s as silly as sorting pictures…

Nepali Tea Trader’s has a Himalayan Gold Tea, I wonder if this is the same source. Really good tea.

Bonnie

Oh, you do have to play with the steep times on these teas we found at Happy Luckys, after tasting many Nepalese varieties. It’s not just you.

Sil

good to know Bonnie, especially since i want to order their teas eventually :)

Lovely, lovely dry leaves. In low light, looking through it, there is almost a pinkish cast to the liquor.

Even sick, this seems like an exceptional tea. Smooth, warm, lightly brisk. It is indeed reminiscent of Darjeelings. There is a light astringency at the end of the sip.

I suspected this might happen. It’s a tea that I’d never spend the money on if it hadn’t been on sale for essentially half price with a certificate. Sigh. I’ll just have to enjoy this one while it lasts.

EDIT: As it cooled off, I was surprised when bringing the cup to my lips to smell vanilla. I don’t necessarily taste it, but I do smell it.

I look forward to my infrequent work trips, mainly because I have the opportunity to visit tea shops and cafes, something I don’t have the luxury to do here in my culturally alive but tea bereft area. On a recent trip to DC, I stopped into Teaism and had a nice cup of Golden Monkey and then bought a tin of this Himalayan Gold from Capital Teas.

I have to say, I have quickly become enamored of this tea. Of course it has the same general profile as a darjeeling, but with a lingering sweetness—Oolong-like in its floweriness—that sets it apart from its more astringent cousin.

I only wish Capital had more unflavored teas to choose from; I would certainly purchase from them again.

This looks like Himalayan Gold from Nepali Tea Traders (non-profit) in Denver. They source tea from farms in Nepal, sell direct and wholesale. This is one of my favorites in their line of black tea’s. www.nepaliteatraders.com The sample sets are a really good way to try their tea’s if you enjoy tea from Nepal. (I don’t mind plugging a non-profit that helps the farmers!)

I noticed the similarities between the two and had always meant to try teas from Nepal tea traders. Thanks for vouching for them.
