Building A Sustainable Future For Himalayan Farmers And Their Families
My partner is a big fan of Earl Grey. I ordered a small amount at first for a taste test. It was quickly gone. My partner says it’s the best she has had and I agree. We quickly order a pound of tea and we are happily making our way through the tea.
Has a spicy kick, but so smooth with some milk. Such a delicious way to start my mornings with some biscotti.
I love this tea, I love buying it by the pound, and I love the carbon offset. Way to go, Young Mountain Tea!
Yes this tea is worth every penny. I vary my teas based on my mood, but can grow tired of most if I use it a few days in a row. Nepali Golden Black bucks this trend. I can drink it every day and never grow tired of how good it tastes and makes me feel. Try it, if you don't like it I'll take whatever you don't drink. ;)
I just love the taste, aroma and sense of reward for drinking such a wonderfully sourced tea.
This product is a great starter for using loose-leaf tea, and the flavors were great! 100% Would recommend!
This Black Tea has a beautiful chocolate flavored full-bodied profile and I really enjoyed it paired with oat milk warm. I believe the tea would be great iced as well! Very smooth tea as well that is delicious by itself without sweetener.
Organic Nepali Golden Black is my new go-to tea! Perfect for starting the day or giving your afternoon a boost. It’s an incredibly smooth black tea. If you like a great breakfast or teatime tea, Nepali Golden Black could be your new favorite, too.
I wanted to let you know I am thoroughly enjoying my Tea Sampler. I still can't figure out which I like best! Originally I ordered simply because I have a Nepalese friend who told me a lot of tea is grown in Nepal - but no one is aware of it. I certainly am now. I just watched the video about the trip to Champawat. I have read and reread Jim Corbett's books since I was a kid and I was thrilled to see a little of what Champawat looks like and the wonderful tea industry being developed there.
Several things really endear YMT to me. In no particular order, the women growing both the tea and a business; another is the sustainable nature of the projects. Most importantly is the tea itself. The store brands I was familiar with like L***** had a strong tannin taste which I strongly dislike. These sampler teas do not. I can easily and enjoyably drink them without sugar, or a little if I want, even if using the same tea a second time as the flavor does indeed change. Speaking of which, the flavors are wonderfully different; I can't make up my mind about which sample I like best. So I keep brewing and drinking and brewing and... Thanks, YMT for introducing me to the teas of Nepal and Kumaon. John
I've purchased some Tea Samplers for gifts for my Tea drinking friends and family and this selection could not be more perfect! Love it! Most of all - Love supporting small businesses AND small farms. It's what helps to build strong communities!
The Silver Needles is the best tea I have ever tasted. I drink it iced all year round. I don’t know how to describe it other than “lovely!”
I love this tea for many reasons. It never seems the same twice. It is very sensitive to amount of tea, heat of water and length of steep and yet is very forgiving of variations in these factors. I have a high tolerance for astringency so if I become distracted while brewing I am a little shocked by the astringency but as I sip on it the other elements of taste still come through and I enjoy it. Other times it is almost flowery sweet but I have not figured out what are the factors that bring out this aspect…I just find it a delightful surprise when it brews this way. On those days I can tell from the aroma before I even take the first sip. An intriguingly complex tea which never disappoints even when the brewer neglects the process. Thank you for offering this lovely tea.
First time ordering from YMT! I ordered the sample pack and a great T-shirt! Been enjoying both since they arrived! Will be a repeat customer for sure!

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.
