A superb full body second flush 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

This is my favorite tea - ever. For those that like a more robust full flavored tea, this is for you. There are also subtle nutty nuances that make this tea delicious.
Himalayan Imperial Black is perfect for me. Shipping was quick and ordering easy.
The Himalayan Imperial Black is one of my favorite teas, and that's coming from a green-tea addict. This is my favorite morning cup, though it's good any time of day or night. It has all of the body of a black tea without the usual astringency associated with most types. There is a long finish of caramel with a hint of stone fruit on the palate and a creamy mouth feel. I can not recommend it highly enough.
Thank you Bob! We appreciate your review, and your visits! :)
Delicious tea from and great service from Happy Tea!
What an amazing tea, with a deep, caramel flavor like no other. Definitely a regular in my morning lineup
