Shangri-La Gold

(1 customer review)

$5.50$34.65 (from $0.61/cup)

This distinctive tea, grown in Ilam, Nepal at an altitude of 5900 ft., has lovely golden tips that produce a deep amber liquor and the enticing aroma of plums and tobacco. The flavor is reminiscent of spiced cocoa and dates and makes a delicious breakfast tea that stands up well to multiple steeps.

    This tea is spectacular. The Yunnan Gold is also great, but I think this one is a little bit more special. It’s got more going on. I definitely got all the notes listed above-Cacao, Spice, Leather, Dates.
    Excellent with milk, as well.

Description

Shangri-La Gold is produced by one of the most ethical tea producers in Nepal — Kamal Mainali.  The tea garden system in Nepal is based on the small stakeholder growing the green leaf.  Most farmers own about 1-2 acres of land and grow tea along with the food they grow for their own use like lemongrass, cardamom and ginger.  This gives the tea and the farmer a very close relationship and the farmers take great pride in the stewardship of their land because it is THEIR land.  Kamal buys the highest quality green leaves from the farmers around his factory and pays for organic certification and training for them to ensure the highest standards are maintained.
