A refreshingly sweet and flowery spring black tea from the famed Antu Valley plantations in Nepal. Facing the mighty Himalayas, Antu Valley is known to produce some extremely fine spring teas, strikingly similar to premium Darjeeling first flush teas. Our maiden offering from this estate is a classic brew with a bright rounded cup suggesting notes of garden fresh spring fruits and flowers. The tea is smooth and develops taste over a few rolls on your palate. The tea has sensations of coriander leaf and finishes on a sweet spot. Can be steeped anytime of the day. An excellent Nepal tea at a great price.
