Black tea from the village of Samcholing in the central highlands of Bhutan from China type bushes grown at an altitude of 1800 m since the 1950s. Dark brown, fully oxidized, regularly rolled leaves with a pleasant, sweetly fruity, slightly spicy aroma. Golden, red-orange infusion, fresh and rich fruit flavors with a predominance of orange, peach, rosehip, a trace of cinnamon and a light and interesting astringency in the aftertaste.

Processing of Samcholing Premium Black Tea

A bud and two leaves are harvested from the tea bushes. The fresh leaves wither overnight in a ventilated area. The withered leaves are then hand sorted, shaken, rolled, oxidized and dried to 20% residual moisture. This is followed by 48 hours of gradual oxidation, finishing with a final drying to light baking.
