Weight: 75 grams (2.6 oz)
Type: Black Tea - loose leaf
Production area: Ilam, Nepal

This tea is produced by the Himalayan Shangri-La Tea Producers, a tea garden that is nourished by pure water from the Himalayas and grown free of pesticides by small farmers that own their own land.

Taste characteristics:
Shangri-La Gold is a rich, luscious tea with some cocoa notes and a surprise wisp of rose. Enjoying a cup of Shangri-La Gold not only satisfies your senses but also your heart. Take a respite from your worldly troubles and let this tea transport you to its tea garden surrounded by high mountains near the top of the world.

By buying high quality, artisan crafted Nepalese tea, you can count yourself as a part of the solution for Nepa's problems. My friend, Jeni, of Jeni Dodd's Tea witnessed first-hand the devastating 7.8 earthquake in Nepal and the subsequent humanitarian crises resulting from the embargo that denied Nepal of 70% of critical imports for nearly 9 months. She advocates trade rather than aid, to create long-term stability for this struggling country.

I love this tea and have ordered it several times. I love that you can get several brews from of it, and that each one tastes slightly different. I love ordering from Bana Tea overall - great selection of puerh teas, also. Good selections, good service!

Wonderful Tea 02/11/2019
By Janet Page
I tried this tea since I have tried several of Banas' pu-erh teas, and enjoyed them all. This one caught my eye because it was listed as a black tea, and because the description included a hint of "rose" in the flavor. I enjoy it because it is brewed like a pu-erh - quickly (and frequently), but tastes like a black. Very smooth, very little tannin taste. And the little breath before the sip - is roses! Delightful!

Shangri-La Gold 12/04/2019
By Linda-Ellen
I love black teas from Yunnan. I have been drinking them for years. I recently took a chance on ordering via the internet a tea called Shangri-La Gold. I was thrilled with the brew. It’s a rich flavorful tea with deep notes of dark chocolate. Loose teas are my favorite I feel I’m getting the full benefit of tea when it has the freedom to open up in a pot with fresh filtered water.
Our responseThank you for your nice review. I have been to the factory myself and was impressed with their operation. The tea speaks for it.

Tea is how I start my day. I have been drinking golden Yunnan for years that is until I tried Shangri-La black tea. I love the rich taste, the notes of dark chocolate, the beautiful red color. I have a tiny clay tea pot that makes one cup at a time. The first cup is great but the second cup is just as good. I would recommend it to anyone who loves loose leaf black tea.
Our responseThank you for the nice review and the endorsement!

That ROSE linger~ 01/15/2019
By ajh
This is a very special tea. Yes, it is a black tea, but each sip ends with a heavenly note of rose. This is not a floral tea with that imitation perfume aroma. I could sip it every day or serve it to some "royal" guests!

Shangri-La Gold Black Tea 10/15/2018
By Jennifer
I ordered this tea after receiving a sample with a previous order. It has an excellent flavor and is not astringent and can be brewed about three times.

Nice variation on everyday black. 05/21/2020

Why get along with flat ordinary black tea when you can drink this! Great afternoon pick-me-up. Surprisingly complex flavor.
Our responseI totally agree with your assessment - why drink the flat ordinary black tea when there is a better option.
