Overview

This rare, organic black tea hails from a Himalayan tea-producing region in northern India. Fragrant with a light body reminiscent of its Darjeeling counterparts, its unique and festive vegetal finish sets it apart.

The Kumaon region was first planted with tea in the 1850s, but was too far from any port to get the tea out of the mountains. The tea experiments were abandoned, and for the last 170 years, the tea has thrived in the wild. Beginning in the 1990s, the Indian government initiated a program to revive tea growth as a way to create rural livelihood opportunities.
