Himalayan Royale Ruby, Organic Black Tea (Sold out until Summer 2021)
One of the finest Nepal black teas from Jun Chiyabari tea estate is back. Every sip of this tea is superb; even better than the 2018 batch which we last had. This fruity and sweet tea sparkles on the palate. You cannot go wrong with this tea. Sadly, only a very small batch of this tea was made this year, 2020.
DRY LEAF: Well rolled leaves with sweet aroma of plum and chocolate.
INFUSION: The nose is dark chocolate, nutty and fruity sweet.
CUP: Amber liquor with a fruity aroma of ripe berries and honey. The notes are well-rounded; very smooth on the palate. Floral-fruity notes with a sweet lingering finish make this tea exceptional.
1 tbsp (3 gm) for a 8 oz cup
