Very tasty, soothing and refreshing tea.
I continue to love this company. Great mission to connect consumers to local growers in India, and the tea is lovely. Smooth and perfect every time. I've tried a variety of options in my area, but can't find anything superior to the tea from Young Mountain
I steeped a small amount of the tea by itself and it was SOOO GOOD! I’ll definitely get more when I run out!!
I really like this tea. It is unusual which is why I find it so intriguing and likely why I am having some difficulty identifying taste elements. The mouth feel is very satisfying. It is earthy, perhaps I should say woody. Definitely not vegetal or grassy. There is an interesting “tang” that I can’t identify. Perhaps it will reveal itself in future brewings?
I do notice that as it cools down in the cup there is a slight and not unpleasant metallic taste which possibly is related to the “tang” i can’t identify. Additional brewings of same leaf are less intense and “tangy” but still very pleasing. Thank you for this very interesting tea.
This tea is what your grandma wishes she could've gotten her hands on! Its light and delish, with just a taste of sunshine!
I am transitioning into a zero-waste lifestyle and am finding that I am saving money and shedding the ingrained consumerist mindset by buying in bulk. What clinched my decision to buy bulk from Young Mountain Tea is the transparency in the supply-chain, commitment to paying farmers living wages, and the personalized process that flows from having a small, passionate team!
Shipping was super-fast and the instructions are easy to follow, even for someone new to loose tea. Being able to steep the leaves multiple times stretches out the value even more! It also turned me onto tea-making as a process and not a means to an end-product. I can't wait to try even more flavors!

I am in love with the tea sold by Young Mountain, and their service is also excellent and fast My order arrived just a few days later. This is a great company offering high quality products that are not easy to find. I can't decide which tea is my favorite because they are all so good!
I love iced tea, and the Organic Kumaon Black is my absolute favorite, and I've tried many different types of black teas from many different sellers. I drink my iced tea very strong, no sugar, and this tea is never bitter, no matter how long I steep it, and has a wonderfully smooth flavor that makes me very, very happy.
I love this sampler pack! Not knowing which flavor of tea I wanted, I really appreciate this bundle. Honestly, I will probably keep getting a mixture of teas, because different moods call for different teas. The flavors are rich and delicious, and the leaves themselves are beautiful. I also really love that I can re-use the tea bags, which makes me feel like I'm getting everything I can out of these leaves.
Thank you to Madelaine and the Young Mountain team for bringing these teas to us here in the states :)
Green teas are great. White teas have an even more refined taste. This Organic White Silver Needle is excellent. Also keep in mind the health benefits. Oregon State University is known for its nutrition research. They studied white tea and according Dr. Linda Page's Healthy Healing book they report that the key element in green tea that has been found to help inhibit cancer is found threefold in white tea. So, white tea not only offers a tasty beverage, but a healthy one too!
I’m a rookie tea drinker and this is a delicious and fun way to learn about tea and the people and places that make it, and how. Beautiful designs make it feel like a present every time I open the cupboard!
I finally treated myself to some Oolong tea. I am very happy I did. This tea was everything Young Mountain said it would be and a bit more. We are very happy with the purchase.
A delicious floral-and-malty flavor, and a rich deep red color to this tea. Excellent quality Assam tea.
All three teas are excellent. I don’t know if I would call one a favorite over the others. I expect when one batch is almost gone, the others will be too. There is not a ‘ringer’ in the bunch!

India has become the second-largest tea producer in the world, crafting world renowned varieties including Darjeeling 1st Flush and Assam Black. We at Young Mountain Tea are proud to be part of this globally beloved industry and are working with emerging tea makers to shape its future. We source directly from small-scale tea gardens in pristine mountain ranges—like our Nepali teas, which flourish in the shadow of Everest—and we are the exclusive U.S. importer of many of the Indian and Nepali loose-leaf teas in our online shop, including the Kumaon teas that hail from a forgotten Himalayan tea region that is being reborn. Every ounce (or pound) of loose-leaf tea you buy helps to create vibrant rural economies and restore the environment. Our deep partnerships with tea growers support individual livelihoods, regional commerce, and help remote communities unlock tea's full potential. That means fresh, certified organic, high-quality Indian and Nepali loose-leaf teas that you won’t find anywhere else. We believe it is possible to create sustainable communities through exceptional tea. We believe in quality and sustainability. And of course, we believe in the power of tea. Raise your cup.
