Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Golden Nepal Black Tea comes from a family run smallholder business at altitudes between 1,000 and 2,000 metres above sea level.
The unique climatic conditions found here contribute significantly to the quality, character and taste of this infusion. It consists of medium-sized, well-worked leaves with many tips, which, when brewed, offer a light, smoky sweetness - a rare delight from start to finish.
The product of natural Chinese hybrid Tea plants, Golden Nepal Black Tea has many other noteworthy qualities. Its caffeine content, for instance, is relatively high at 45-mg per 8-oz cup.
Then there is the fact that, according to the latest scientific research, its frequent consumption leads to Black Tea Benefits. Perhaps best of all, we pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory.
Nepal Tea - All You Need to Know
The history of Nepal Tea began in 1863, which is relatively recent compared to the 5,000-year-origins of Chinese Tea. Production first took place in the hilly region of the Ilam district, although political turmoil dampened many initial attempts to build the industry.
It wasn’t until the 1950s, in fact, that mass-cultivation of Tea was economically viable in Nepal.
Traditionally, the local people enjoy a cup of Nepal Tea, including Golden Nepal Black Tea, at least twice a day. Mornings usually start with a steaming hot brew to keep away the cold from the Himalayas, with additions such as milk and sugar considered commonplace.
Some even add ghee, a sort of butter, to these infusions. Whatever you decide, you’ve chosen well with this delectable beverage.

Benefits of Drinking Golden Nepal Black Tea
Evidence indicates that, among other qualities, this Tea can benefit skin health. But how - and why? Its antibacterial properties, for starters, prevent acne outbreaks.
Then there is the fact that it protects the elastin in our skin, which is one of the primary causes of skin ageing. The answers come from a 2014 Korean study published in the Journal of Toxicological Research.
Its data established that a treatment using Black Tea (such as this one) greatly improved skin conditions in mice. Whether these results apply to humans, too, remains to be seen. However, if proven outright, it could boost the confidence of countless people.
