A most unusual dark tea possessing a rich earthy dark chocolate aroma and taste.
It is processed initially as a normal black tea which is then left in a 'jute bag' exposed to the Nepalese elements for a year and then finally 'fired'. This processing style is unique to Nepal and produces a tea which can be best described as 'semi-ripe' as it's flavour profile is halfway in-between a black tea and a ripe dark tea.
Sourced direct from Sandakphu Tea, a factory which processes the tea grown by the villagers of Jasbire Village in Ilam District.
