Himalayan Imperial Black | Single Batch Tea

Himalayan Imperial Black | Single Batch Tea

A deep and delicious black tea with cocoa, toffee, caramelised sugar notes, and a smooth body.

Jun Chiyabari is a young, boutique garden, perched in Hile, Nepal, in the foothills of the Himalayas, reaching over 6,000ft. The garden was founded in 2000 by two brothers, Lochan and Bachan, and grown organically from the start. There are a many tea cultivars at Jun Chiyabari, and a philosophy of experimentation at this boutique garden.

The Imperial Black is a fully oxidised, large leaf black tea, best picked in the Autumn which is unusual for teas in the Himalayan region. The leaves come from mixed clonal cultivars, which are fully oxidised and then fired to slightly caramelise the sugars. We always look for the batches on the more caramelised side as this shows off this style of tea to its full potential.
