NEPAL - SHANGRI-LÂ TEMPLE
Tea was first brought to Nepal in the second half of the XIXth century with the impulsion of the Governor at that time.
The SHANGRI LÂ plantation (which literally means the Kingdom of Paradise in Chinese) is located in high altitude, around 2200 meters above the sea level and proposes a quality which can be compared with those of the best Darjeelings.
Close to its Indian cousin, using the same proceedings and know-how of its neighbours, this tea from Nepal in the area of Dhankuta offers notes of hazelnuts, cacao and under wood with an audacious and floral bouquet which will feel with pleasure the most perfectionist connoisseurs of the black teas.
This tea of a strong character, less astringent than those from the Darjeeling, with a gustative power, intense and harmonious.
An affordable tea which will lead you, through a single cup of tea, to the height of the Himalaya!
Recommended brewing time: from 3’45 to 4’30 with a water at 85°C
