  • “Huh. Wow. Steeping this for 2 minutes at 195F gives me delightful honey flavour and no bad stuff. I like it! Plain!! (I better like it. I have an other 50g bag sitting in the cupboard!)” Read full tasting note

Take you higher

There are good things brewing in the Highlands of Nepal. Like this hand-made black tea, from a small family-owned tea garden named Jun Chiyabari. From the first sip you’ll notice its rich, sweet, honey-like flavour. What doesn’t come through in the cup is how much good this little tea garden does. They’ve set up a ton of amazing community programs to benefit local schools, underprivileged families, and the elderly. This particular tea is a DAVIDsTEA exclusive – now that’s a good thing.

A go-to black tea for me. I love the sweet and honey notes. This is an easy drink and has very little astringency.

This one reminded me of a Darjeeling (not surprisingly), which is a good thing since I love that blend… I had this to go with a splash of milk. Mmmm, divine. Another reminder that a really good basic black tea is definitely a comfort thing for me.

My favourite straight black tea from DT. A nice cross between a Yunnan and a Darjeeling. It’s a high altitude tea, so I was expecting a very light tea, but it stands on its own very well or with milk and sugar. Almost has a woodsy/earthy flavour.

Delicious as a breakfast tea with only a small amount of milk and sugar.

A gentle and sweet mountain tea without a trace of bitterness. Features distinct honey notes and a refreshing quality.

I absolutely loved the smell of this tea when I bought it. The smell was of light honey followed by a classic darjeeling black tea scent.

The smell while steeping turned me off a little, but after taking a few sips I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The flavour consists of a light honey taste, thick maltiness and a bold astringent finish.

Overall, a good black tea but not my favourite.

This is pretty good. It’s a little bit sweet – I’m definitely getting honey – and a little bit malty. Very smooth, not particularly robust. Not much astringency and no bitterness. As far as unflavored black teas go, I usually stick to Darjeelings and while this tea is somewhat reminiscent of those I don’t like it quite as much. I prefer the floral undertones I get from Darjeelings to the honey ones here. This tea is nothing special and I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again, but I am enjoying it.

Very nice honey notes prominent in the nose of both the dry leaf and the brewed cup. Seems to have no bitter bite; almost wish it had a little bit more. Extremely smooth, yet full bodied and fairly rich. Drank it black, think it would go nicely with milk and sugar.

I like the subtle sweetness this has. I find even when I leave it to steep too long, it doesn’t grow bitter-it reminds me a bit of orange pekoe which I don’t necessarily mind. I initially bought a cup to go, but after enjoying it as much as I did, I slipped back in to buy some to take home with me. Definitely don’t regret it.
