Today's tea is from the David's tea lineup and by far their highest quality black tea.
There are good things brewing in the Highlands of Nepal. Like this hand-made black tea, from a small family-owned tea garden named Jun Chiyabari. From the first sip you’ll notice its rich, sweet, honey-like flavour. What doesn’t come through in the cup is how much good this little tea garden does. They’ve set up a ton of amazing community programs to benefit local schools, underprivileged families, and the elderly. This particular tea is a DAVIDsTEA exclusive – now that’s a good thing.

Very pleasing tea and from a very surprising source. But what really gets me is the quality of the leaf used. these are some large leafs and mostly whole too. more than that can be said for most blacks.
