From Jun Chiyabari Himalayan Autumn

One of the best teas of Nepal’s Autumnal harvest, this superlative offering was hand rolled and sorted to preserve flavor in the leaf. A large amount of leaf tips contribute to a seductive aroma of rosewood and tea blossoms and layers of buttery and floral notes. The finish is slightly brisk and lingering. This tea is produced without chemicals, but is not organic certified.

ooh, this one is really nice. It has nice large fluffy leaves and smells very flowery in the bag.

According to my little pouch this tea was picked on Nov 11, 2011. I steeped it at 5 minutes at around 195 F.

Yum! I happen to really like this flavor profile. It has a sweet malty aroma and also seems like it has a lightly toasted or baked quality. Biscuits anyone? I am also picking up the sandalwood aroma and the tea after drinking just gently coats your palette with no real astringency that I can detect. Slightly buttery but this is not one of the main flavors I’m picking up. At times this reminds me of an oolong and at others times it reminds me of a darjeeling but it’s really pretty unique which seems to part of the Himalayan terroir…

Slightly brisk and lingering according to the RTR website. Yes this does seem like an apt description. I do like tea companies that can really sum up the essence of the tea in a brief paragragh.

Very well done, all around. Also very pricey so would have to decide if I really need this in my stash or no…

The Jun Chiyabari Estate is tops when it comes to Himilayan teas from what I’ve read. I don’t really know if I need to purchase this from RTR, since I order from Upton’s and they carry a few JC teas. Or do I? I really trying to rationalize my own thoughts here while at the same time asking questions. :))

TeaBrat

Scott, I don’t know. I’d imagine estate teas are similar no matter who you order them from. :)

ScottTeaMan

Yeah, I agree…….but “they” say that different lots from the same estate can vary significantly sometimes. Unless I see several teas from RTR that I’m really wanting to try, I’ll shop elsewhere, but your reviews make it tempting. Also, I am trying to consume more of what I have in house now.

ScottTeaMan I can’t believe you’re the only one to post a review on this tea!

Post infusion this is one of the lightest black tea color liquored teas I have come across. The aroma is amazing and so is the taste, tho! Slightly floral, nutty, bakey, crusty-even…the flavor on the tongue is sweet nutty with hints of woodsy and a bit floral. I’m picking up on something that resembles the slightest hint of sweet corn, too! It’s unique but terrific! There is a nice about of buttery-goodness happening here, too! This is really special! I LOVE this!

I loved it tooooo> :)
