Smooth delightful tea

This tea is very smooth, and yummy. Almost no tannins. I use a bit of sugar and it’s a great cup. I have tried a second infusion and it seems just as nice, if even milder. Perfect afternoon by the fire tea.

Delicious Rare Tea Company tea

Lovely tea that left me feeling energetic and restored; ready for work. All the Rare Tea Company teas have been wonderfully good and this one was as well. Ordering more!

The wonderful aroma gives out notes of chocolate and instills an excitement for the flavors to come! This tea is delightfully flavorful yet gentle. It is a contemplative and soothing flavor. I have never had a tea quite like it and struggle to describe it. It give me a lovely break from the daily grind and encourages me to slow down and savor the little moments! I highly recommended it and it is quite a bang for you buck.

Exceptional flavor

This is a very nice black tea. I thought it was best on its own without milk or sugar. To me it is fragrant but not flowery and became sweeter and softer with repeat infusions. I will definitely add it to my morning tea routine.

The 'Inclusive' Tea

Love drinking it either black or with milk, is light, with an earthy flavour. Great for any function.

Tasting Notes

A particularly deep black tea with notes of dark chocolate and bright citrus. Best enjoyed without milk.


Use 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water (2.5g per 150ml).


For the optimum infusion use 185°F (85°C) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

37¢ per cup based on 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 2 infusions.


The Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden

High in the Nepali Himalayas lies the tiny but extraordinarily beautiful Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden. At 1835 meters above sea level, the tea grows slowly but with intense flavours. This very special terroir produces uniquely rich, chocolate flavours.

Morris Orchard

The garden is run by Morris Orchard, a third generation Nepali tea planter whose grandfather came from Britain to plant tea. This lovely man has a great respect for the land, the tea, and the small team he works with - it is an honour to be part of that.
