Before I get to my tea tasting time with Kathmandu Cosmos from Nepal Tea LLC I thought I would give you a little geography lesson.
Kathmandu is the capital city of the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal which is the largest Himalayan state in Asia. It is the largest metropolis in Nepal, with a population of 1.4 million in the city proper, and 5 million in its urban agglomeration across the Kathmandu Valley, which includes the towns of Lalitpur, Kirtipur, Madhyapur Thimi and Bhaktapur. Kathmandu is also the largest metropolis in the Himalayan hill region.
As for this tea…Kathmandu Cosmos from Nepal Tea LLC it’s a spicy little number. It has a golden tip base with a hefty amount of spices blended in. It’s considered the company’s Ayurvedic Blend.
It’s not currently in stock on their website’s shop but I thought it was still worth a mention. Especially if you are into spicer teas, chai teas, and Ayurveda Teas.
At the time of writing this review for SororiTea Sisters it says on their website that their Classic Loose Leaf Teas include the orthodox range that is made from only the nest tips plucked from the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate (Nepal’s First Certified Organic Tea Garden) in Panchthar District, Eastern Nepal. All flavors described are from naturally occurring compounds created by the tea plant and crafting process.
It seems like their teas are normally priced between $9.99-$12.99 for about 1.7 ounces and depending on which loose leaf tea you are looking at averages to be about 25 cups. For the quality of the tea leaf I experienced this seems to be at a good price! Certainly a company you should check out in the near future if you haven’t already!
Here’s the scoop!
