Himalayan Sunshine, Nepal Organic Black Tea - Spring 2020, Jun Chiyabari Tea Estate

3 reviews

A delicate and bright first flush organic black tea from our partners in Nepal - Jun Chiyabari Tea Estate.  It's tastes like sunshine and Spring in the majestic Himalayan mountains. It has lovely notes of peach, wildflowers and green mangoes with a sweet lingering finish in the cup.  

This tea was produced during the lock down of spring 2020. It took nearly two months for it to arrive. For us it symbolizes hope in the face of adversity. We are grateful for every sip of this tea. 

DRY TEA: Small chinary leaves, with abundant tips. Smells of freshly cut grass, green pepper. 

INFUSION: Green and brown leaves with nose of peach, mums and cane sugar.

CUP: Light amber with notes of peach, wildflowers, green mangoes, yam. Light bodied. Brisk with a sweet finish. 


   1 level tbsp or 2.5 gm per 8 oz cup

Taste of the gods from the Himalayas in Nepal

This is the 2nd year that a little estate from Nepal, Jun Chiyabari is beating out the Darjeeling competition at this point. The NYT had a review with Jun C a few months ago. In Rochester tea aficionados were way ahead of the game, as our own tea master Niraj had already blessed us with this elixir. My first cup of tea has to be perfect, brewed exactly the same way down to the last second, every morning. Jun C evoked for me, the Recall of the joy of the first monsoon rain. Of running out and dancing in the rain. I did abandon Jun C last year for a Darjeeling. So Jun C tea upped its game, and said I am the best this year. Nothing will beat me. I am inclined to agree. So as not to hurt Darjeeling's feelings, as Niraj is from there, we will have to have am, midday and pm favorites. South Asian Teas are a big meal. Sweet and savory foods from England and from south Asia. Pakoras, coriander and coconut chutney sandwiches, lots of sweet deserts and other snacks (street food ) that are rarely found in south Asian restaurants. We needs a south Asian Tea house that serves all this. I have family recipes.
