Nepalese Hand Rolled Tips


We have been enjoying the work of our friends at Jun Chiyabari. Emeric Harney visited there a few years back. When they sent us this lovely tea, well, we just had to get it for you. The big leaves with tips are preserved by the hand rolling done. This allows for a very special tea that is a bit reminiscent of a fine Darjeeling.

  • Packed 1.5 ounces in a tin.
