Despite most of our products being whole leaf, we still offer this black leaf tea and you will be surprised to learn the reason behind it. In 2023, we decided to remove this product from our offering list, but we have a frequent customer who loves this tea. She is a black leaf tea connoisseur, who drinks 3-5 cups of tea every day. We did stop selling this product but she reached out and inquired about it. When we asked her why she liked the product this is what she had to say:“The product feels original and authentic and pure. I have tried drinking teas from different brands, but none of them are as good as this. I can keep drinking 3-5 cups every day and not get bored with the taste”. Also, it is for a good value. You won’t find a premium black leaf tea 250-gram package and this quality for $20. A pack lasts me for around 30 days or more, and I like it just the way it is”. We took her testimonial as a feedback for us. And we will keep offering this product until we find a similar product that is whole black leaf tea but up to her standards. 

Nestled beneath the grandeur of the Himalayan mountains, our tea gardens thrive in the cool, misty air and fertile soil of Nepal's Eastern Hills, nurturing some of the finest tea leaves you'll ever taste.

Brew Your Cup of Loose Leaf Black Tea

Boil Water: Start by bringing fresh, cold water to a rolling boil. Use a kettle or a pot to heat the water. Black tea is best brewed with water at or just below the boiling point, typically around 200-212°F (93-100°C).

Preheat Teapot or Teacup: Pour a small amount of hot water into your teapot or teacup to preheat it. Swirl the water around and then discard it. This helps maintain the tea's temperature during brewing.

Measure Tea Leaves: Use a teaspoon to measure the desired amount of black tea leaves. A general guideline is to use 1 teaspoon of tea leaves per 8 ounces (240 milliliters) of water. Adjust the amount to your taste preference.

Add Tea Leaves: Place the measured tea leaves into a tea infuser, tea bag, or directly into the teapot or teacup.

Pour Hot Water: Pour the freshly boiled water over the tea leaves. Ensure that the tea leaves are fully submerged. Use the amount of water corresponding to the number of cups you want to brew.

Steep Time: Allow the tea to steep for 3 to 5 minutes. The steeping time can vary depending on the type of black tea and your personal taste. Longer steeping times generally result in stronger, more robust flavors.

Remove Tea Leaves: After the desired steeping time, remove the tea leaves or tea bag to prevent over-brewing, which can lead to a bitter taste.

Optional Additions: If desired, add sweetener (such as sugar or honey), milk, or a squeeze of lemon to taste. Be mindful not to overwhelm the tea's natural flavors, especially when trying a new tea.

Enjoy: Your black tea is now ready to enjoy. Sip it slowly and savor the unique flavors and aromas.
