Himalayan Mountain Tips (No. 351)
A unique and exquisite tea high-grown in the pristine hills of Nepal. The tippy, well-sorted leaf yields a coppery-orange brew with a scent that is reminiscent of ripe pear. Rich and complex in flavor, this tea can best be described as being somewhere between a Darjeeling and a high-grown Ceylon.
Recommendations: Use 1 level tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water to a roaring boil and let steep for 2.5 min. Try a second infusion.
Ingredients: Black tea
