Organic Tea at its Best
In Nepal, people refer to Mt Everest as Sagarmartha. This tea is name after the cloud piercing mountain at the top of the world, as it fetched first place in an international tea tasting held at Everest Base Camp in April 2018.
This exquisite first flush* tea delivers a rare experience. The tender buds are grown in rich soil at 2100 metres. They are hand-plucked with an open leaf – this allows the bud to breathe. The buds are the carefully separated, withered, naturally oxidized, hand-rolled and dried.
This rare, organic tea possesses a floral bouquet with notes of honey, maple and roasted almonds. Sagarmartha Gold has a smooth and mellow finish. It is slightly sweet, with no hint of the bitterness.
Sagarmartha Gold Organic Tea can be brewed multiple times, just make sure you don’t oversteep the leaves – and that you use the correct temperature water.
The 10 gram packet will contains 6- 10 servings – plus multiple steeps. The 30 Grams contains 18-30 servings – plus multiple steeps.
Instructions for brewing:
Bring fresh filtered water to a rolling boil. Wait for 3 minutes before gently pouring the water over fresh leaves in a clean pot or infuser. Steep for 3-4 minutes and enjoy immediately.

Sagarmartha Gold can be re-steeped many times, and will steep overnight for a refreshing morning cool tea towards the end of their steeping life.
