Description: This beautiful, organic black tea hails from the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate in Nepal. Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Kanchanjangha, this is the first tea estate in Nepal to receive organic certification. The tightly twisted dark leaves and golden tips highlight the superior craftsmanship of the tea master, and offer an aroma of fall leaves. When brewed, the leaves produce a bright, amber cup with a dry, light-bodied liquor that wicks off the tongue quickly. Offering sweet notes of brown sugar, this smooth organic black tea is reminiscent of a baked molasses cookie that becomes more toasty with subsequent infusions.

Named “Kumari”, this tea carries a title of special significance. Kumari not only means “Living Goddess” in the Nepali language, but is also the middle name of the founder's wife. She planted the first tea bush at the estate in 1984 (which was their backyard at the time) and has since served as one of the main advocates for and caretakers of the farmers and factory workers on the estate. Today, more than 600 farmers are employed by the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate which provides free schooling for their 2300 children and free housing for all.
