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.

Connoisseur TeaIngredients:

Nepali Black Tea

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.

Step 1:
Preheat mug with boiling water, discard and refill. Allow to cool for two minutes.
Step 2:
Steep 2 rounded tsp or 3-4 grams of tea per 8 oz water.
Step 3:
Steep for 2-3 minutes as desired. Experiment with cooler water or shorter steeping times. Try 2-3 steepings.

    I have been looking for an occasional alternate to our usual morning pot of Assam, and then I stumbled upon this company--Dominion, new to me--and this tea. I am not a fan of sweet teas, but this one has just the right amount of something extra that I would expect from its name and the place of its origins. It now has its own canister in our tea collection. Thank you, Dominion.

  • Still Figuring this Out

    When I give this 4 stars, I want the reader to know that this only means I wasn't floored. This is a good tea. Mild by caffeine standards, but this had a full mouthfeel from the first sip. There are hints of a smoky caramel - trust me that this is better than it sounds. This would be one of my afternoon teas, but as a morning tea this left me disappointed. Also I'm still figuring out how to get a consistent brew. This is a tea I will order again, but this would be a 2nd-tier backup tea for me. This does not play nicely with milk/cream, but does with sugar. I was experimenting and I think the teeniest, tiniest amount of salt makes this come alive. I know there are tea purists out there ready to have me pilloried for suggesting salt, but I think it's worth a try.
