Organic Himalayan Imperial Black Tea - Nepal Black Tea, Summer 2019 Jun Chiyabari

21 reviews

A superb full body second flush organic black tea from Jun Chiyabari tea estate. Rich with flavors of molasses, pepper and spice this organic Himalayan Imperial Black tea is good choice if you are looking for a strong, yet refined and smooth tea.

DRY LEAF: Long wiry leaves with an unusual crispness for teas from the Himalayas. Recalls wuyi rock oolong tea in appearance, but with more finer leaves. Rich aroma of dark chocolate and burnt caramel.

INFUSION: The leaves appear cocoa brown with a nose of chocolate, caramel and spice.

CUP: The liquor is dark honey with a sweet fruity fragrance. A delicate creaminess coats the palate with rich notes of plum and caramel together with spicy hints. Long sweet aftertaste.



   1 tbsp for a 8-12 oz cup


   3-5 mins

A morning without it is not quite as pleasant!

Love this tea! My favorite. When it’s out of stock I experiment with other teas from Happy Earth, all of which I have enjoyed. But I’m happiest, and in my element with Organic Himalayan Imperial Black :-) Thanks, Niraj, for your wonderful company, and delicious assortment of teas!

Awaken the senses

This is my favorite morning and late afternoon tea. A mild tastes robust aroma that awakens the senses. During the day I move to a green tea called Pi Lo Chun. I sip it throughout the day. It is cool tasting and refreshes me even when it cools down. It has a lovely sweet grass aroma so you feel l like you are in a sunlit glenn.

A Great morning and late afternoon tea.

Organic Himalayan Imperial Black Tea. I have enjoyed this tea in the early morning and at 4 in the afternoon. It has a refreshing fragrance and is long on taste. Not sure what that means but the taste is strong and lasting. I only purchased an ounce to try it and I will have to buy 4 ounces the next time.
