I love the pure himalayan black tea with superb stronger flavor and rich color.I personally experienced many health benefits from this himalayan tea and the most important thing is these tea comes with great taste in very affordable price :wink:

Himalayan blacks can come from Darjeeling, Sikim, Nepal ... while I am not drinking them currently, they are often outstanding.

However buying a tea bearing these origins does not guarantee a great tea as there are lots of shananigans going on there. Teas labeled simply "Himalayan" tend to be more generic from some vendors such as Upton and less interesting.

Buying fresh and from a reputable source will help to assure a level of success.

thanks chip i didnt know...
mine were like darjeeling, not a bad tea but simply not interesting to me.
it was from nepal... it was ok from taste, just for myself not really interesting, and even so im not an expert on indian tea and i know sikkim only from hearsay, i would say the tea was much like a darjeeling. i would say a bit weak for a black tea.

True, they are champagne of black teas compared to the whiskey, scotch, bourbon of Chinese blacks and the malts of Assam. A very different animal.

I have a Nepalese grocery store pretty close by...should I attempt to procure some tea? I think they'd probably hand me something pretty crappy, but you never know :)

I'm looking forward to try a Himalayan tea. I think is great to have different flavors and experiences from different regions. If anyone know where to get a descent to great one, let me know.

Oddly most of the people I talked to in Nepal prefer tea from India, they would probably sell you a strong ctc loose tea from darjeeling or assam haha!

And, most of the people in India also prefer a ctc from India. :D

One of the difficulties of Nepali and Indian tea drinkers is getting the good stuff. So much is exported that the good stuff is not widely available.

Today, I was given a generous gift of Nepali teas. I broke into the bag from Jun Chiyabari which was labeled 'Himalayan Orange'. The smell of the dry leaves promised me a lovely experience. The citrus overtones and flowery aroma were powerful in the mouth. Very intense flavor. This has the terroir of the Darjeeling area, and the power of an Assam. Interesting tea. Recommended.

+1. This has been the case for as many years as I have been drinking tea. Best Indian region teas are most likely exported compared to origins such as China which often keeps the best.

The Nepalese store only had Indian tea (as predicted). My mom only drinks the CTC stuff too. I've started prerinsing her black tea when I drink it with her and it does appear to take the astringent edge off. For some reason black tea first thing in the morning makes me nauseous, but none of the Chinese teas I drink do...

I get this effect sometimes from Japanese teas on an empty stomach.
