Excellent Smooth Rich Full Body

This is it for a traditional afternoon tea! Smooth, not astingent or bitter. Deep rich color. Perfect on a cold, damp late spring afternoon.

Looks great, tastes good

This tea is beautiful to look at, lots of gold fuzzy curled leaf, opens beautifully to large pieces of leaf in the pot. Brews a perfect red tan that is nice and clear. The flavor is good and a very traditional red/black tea, but isn't really exceptional or out of the ordinary compared to the red/black teas from Asia. While it isn't an extremely complex tea it is a comfortable flavor and a perfect tea if you drink Irish Breakfast or English Breakfast and want something to try drinking neat but that will still be familiar.

My brewing method has been a 140ml pot with off the boil water and a healthy heaping teaspoon of leaf. Infusion time starting at 20 sec and increasing to a minute towards the end of the 500ml of prepared water. I'm getting at least 5 good steeps and 500ml of tea this way.

Camellia Sinensis (Green Leaves)

Kanchanjangha Tea Estate and Research Center Pvt. Ltd. (KTERC). KTERC is the first certified organic tea garden in Nepal that was established in 1984 by Mr. Deepak Prakash Baskota to rid his community of poverty. It remains a model social enterprise still today, that runs on cooperative infrastructure and is truly focused on the people and planet before profit.

Our special Kumari Gold black tea, often known as golden tips tea, has quite a bit of unique tweaks to the normal black tea processing technique. Similar to other specialty teas, generally only one (sometimes two) leaves and the terminal bud are carefully plucked during the second flush (summer season). The freshly hand-plucked delicate leaves are withered for several hours to get the moisture out of the tea leaves so that the leaves remain intact during the rolling process. The rolling process is done in several stages with low-medium and high pressure during which great care is taken so as not to break the leaves but also bring out the essential oils and other aromatic components of tea to life. After a complete rolling process of about 20-25 minutes, the leaves are set to oxidize (some might call this fermentation, however it is only reacting with oxygen so there is no actual bacterial fermentation going on) for 8-10 hours depending on the type of leaves and the season.

During the oxidation process, the leaves are turned and set in many different positions in frequent intervals. This is not only critical in bringing out the desired flavors, but it also enhances the golden coloring of the buds through oxidation. At the peak of their aroma, the leaves are sent for the drying process, which captures the flavors and the aromas that are later prominent in the cup of the drinker when brewed.

Our tea garden is nestled in the foothills of Mt. Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world, in the eastern part of Nepal. Located precisely near the western borders of Darjeeling, India and north of the Illam, the most famous tea growing region in Nepal, our small village enjoys the best of both worlds. Situated at an altitude of 1300-1800 meters (4,200 - 6000 feet), the area enjoys a pristine himalayan climatic conditions to produce highly unique and aromatic teas.

This special golden tips tea will intrigue tea novices and connoisseurs both. Tea lovers with aptitude for Yunnan Gold, Golden Monkey or any other golden tips tea will surely enjoy this beautiful cup. With very little astringency and a lot of toasty sweet notes, it is sure to become a favorite of yours - it didn’t become our best selling tea for no reason!
