DESCRIPTION Bag weight & ingredients How we select teas
 
SHANGRI LA is from Maipokhari in the far Eastern part of Nepal. A superb organic black tea that has an amber infusion with subtle spice notes and hints of apricot. This tea is smooth, brisk and complex, with a well balanced astringency.

It is hand rolled, followed by mechanical rolling to give a fine twist, and oxidized over 26 hours at a 6500 feet elevation. The constant flow of cold mist supplied by nature at this altitude makes the oxidation process extremely slow. Once the desired color and flavor is attained, which is less than most black teas (some might consider it on the edge of a darkish Oolong), it is dried slowly and matured with time and perfection.
