Who would equate Colombia and tea? Most would not, however we do have the advantage of having Elvira Cardenas as a tea taster. And she is a very good one. So when she said someone in her country made good tea, we gave it a try. The company calls itself Himalaya, as it is up in mountains of Colombia and respects tea traditions. We chose a black and green tea. They are both quite tasty and worth a try.

A rare black tea from Colombia and it tastes good too!
Large twisted black leaves. There is the occasional lighter tip.
Medium brown clear liquor.
Honey aromas waft up.
This is a light bodied tea since it is has large leaves with some tips.
The honey flavors come through nicely, like a good Assam.
