Maybe because it’s grown in the Himalayas, but this tea is very reminiscent of a Darjeeling! The aroma is similar and the notes I pick up the most are like a stronger first flush Darjeeling or light second flush Darjeeling. There’s a pleasant astringency to this tea and it makes a great afternoon cup.
Himalayan Thunder Hand-Rolled Black
Tightly curled hand-rolled tea leaves produce a clear, golden color infusion. This black tea has a medium astringency and a taste reminiscent of a blend of Darjeeling and Assam teas. Grown at a small tea garden, Jun Chiyabari, at an elevation of 6500 feet in the foothills of the Himalayas in Nepal.
