Some time ago, we had carried a Himalayan Orange. Orange here refers to the size of the leaf as well as the color of the liquor.  It’s produced year round but the most exquisite flavors are found in the tea produced in the early summer months.  It yields many of the fruity aromas of a second flush Darjeeling with a much softer and nuanced body. The minute this offer came across our table after Emeric Harney’s return from Nepal this spring, we immediately purchased the entire lot of it!
