Everest Gold Black Tea Description:
Top quality orthodox teas from Nepal are produced in extremely small quantities and often difficult to come by. Everest Gold is meant to be an outstanding representation of black tea from Nepal at the time of availability. However, this tea will change, potentially quite significantly, from year to year. Our current Everest Gold is an exquisite Black Tea from Pathivara Tea Estate in remote eastern Nepal. It is partially oxidized, so you will see golden tips. It is smooth, woody, slightly malty in flavor. It is not astringent, with a soft finish.

Everest Gold Significance:
We are able to purchase from Pathivara Estate, and get this beautiful tea to the United States because of the Himalayan Tea Plantation Cooperative. The HIMCOOP is joint marketing consortium of Orthodox tea growers in Nepal. The staff at the HIMCOOP have the job of connecting tea merchants with the tea farmers in Nepal. This allows small growers like the Pathivara Estate to do business internationally, which allows them to get a fair price for their teas.It also opens up this hidden gem of the tea world to discovery by a broader audience of tea lovers.
