Everest Gold Black Tea Description:

This is a NEW version of Everest Gold for 2020!

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.

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.

  1. Disappointed for all the wrong reasons 4 Star Review

    Posted by on May 7th 2020

    When I ordered this tea, i was excited to what i assumed to be a great small-batch, strange Nepalese tea. What i got was a great, small-batch, Nepalese tea that triggered every iced tea memory i have ever had. And i was immediately disappointed. Here I was expecting something different, something I had never had, and what I got was essentially a WONDERFUL iteration of Lipton's, or Luzianne. Who knew that a country that was subjugated by England for so long would start making English favored teas? All this said, this is my favorite with which to make Iced Tea. Toss in a bit of Earl Gray and you have an incredible outdoor refreshment for the quarantine.
