Very smooth and subtle for a black tea, almost sweet. I am in love with this tea. Black teas are often too bitter for me. Everest Sunrise has no hint of bitterness. It actually gets sweeter after drinking.
Flavors: Sweet Potatoes
This double-roasted black tea has almost no astringency or dryness to it but it contains some very complex, full flavors. It tastes of molasses, raisin, and sweet potato with more subtle hints of grape and caramelized sugar. It has an incredibly sweet aftertaste for a black tea. The orange color of the brewed tea reminds us of a fire and the leaves have a strong, sweet fragrance along with a root vegetable smell which is common for the high-altitude teas of Nepal.
The Hariyali Cooperative is located in the mountains of Ilam, Nepal and it is Nepal’s first independent tea cooperative and Purna Mukhiya is at the helm of it. This farm sits at an elevation of 5,900 feet (1,800 meters). They are dedicated to all-natural cultivation methods and they are in the process of making Nepal a known tea producing country. In the past the majority of the tea produced in Nepal would be sold to farmers in India, primarily in Darjeeling and the tea would be sold as Darjeeling tea. This cooperative is one of the first attempts to change that. They are constantly tweaking both their farming and processing methods in order to produce the best tea that they can.
