With great excitement I am pleased to finally bring back the Nepal Golden Tips, one of the first teas offered on What-Cha and a personal favourite.
Made entirely of young buds, possessing a lovely smooth sweet malt taste which lingers in the mouth, without any detectable bitterness or astringency.
The new version comes from a different tea estate but matches the quality of the previous one.
