Our Himalayan Sunrise produces a smooth rounded infusion. This is a beautiful white tea with a deep golden liquor and semi-sweet notes reminiscent of chestnuts, toast and root vegetables.
We loved this tea as it is not like any other white tea we have tasted from other growing regions. Finding unique expressions of terroir and providing our customers with opportunities to taste these brings us great joy and we think this is a wonderful introduction to Nepali teas.
