Himalayan Imperial Black

4.6 star rating 51 Reviews

We first were exposed to this delicious black tea from Nepal when Emeric and his husband Rob had returned from their trip to the area in 2017 but unfortunately, none was available for purchase. This year we were able to get some to share with you! This black tea is made with many manufacturing hours, where it’s withered for a generous 36 hours, rolled for 3 and then oxidized for 6 hours. It is then fired at a very low temperature which allows the unique chocolate flavors to remain.
