Nepal Kuwapani Black Tea
This tea is similar to a Darjeeling second flush, grown just across the border to Nepal and processed in a similar fashion. It comes from the Kuwapani Tea Estate which is located in the foothills of the Himalayas, with the beautiful Makalu peak overlooking the estate. The estate is located at 6000 feet where there is a good balance of sunshine, mist and monsoon rains. The dry leaf is dark brown with plentiful white tips. The aroma is fruity with a subtle citric zest.
