Shanti Hathi-Peaceful Elephant Nuxalbari Estate, Darjeeling District
(formerly Base Camp Black)
Shanti Hathi-Peaceful Elephant Nuxalbari Estate, Darjeeling District is a brisk black. Front flavors include hints of sweet asparagus and artichoke. The finish is a with a wispy, dry finish.
This tea is named Shanti Hathi-Peaceful Elephant because the estate replanted several acres into elephant habitat. So much of the elephant’s habitat is either fragmented or taken up by human acitivtiy, that it leaves elephants with little or no habitat. However, elephants are able to safely pass through, and stay if they wish, at Nuxalbari Tea Estate.
Nuxalbari Tea Estate is located at the foothills of the Himalaya. While images of world renown peaks and challenges come hand in hand with the Himaylaya, our intent is that you think about the obstacles the elephant faces while drinking this tea. We hope that by sourcing tea from Nuxalbari, they are in turn are able to continue to help the Asian Elephant find respite and safe passage at the tea estate.
Sip this lovely, warm cup of tea as you plan your day. Shanti Hathi is a perfect cup for the morning and as an afternoon pick me up.
