Oh, I think this is my favorite of the Nepal Tea samplers I’ve tried thus far. I used about half the loose leaf (around 3.75g) steeped in 500ml of 205F water.

It smells like a Chinese black… it has that sort of pithy orange mixed with smoke smell that always reminds me of a BBQ sauce or savory meat marinade, which I smell/taste in Chinese blacks often.

The tea is very malty, with some notes of leather, orange zest, smoke, spices (most close to the peppery aspect of cardamom), and maybe just a hint of floral rose. It’s a nice strong tea and goes well with breakfast. I had some cookies kindly gifted to me by AJRimmer with it, and the sweetness also accompanied the mild astringency and umami notes nicely. (That cookie was also banging… I love mochi but I can’t stand azuki, so I tend to avoid it because I hate biting into mochi and getting surprise azuki in my mouth. I’ve never seen a chocolate chip cookie with mochi in the center! It was great! We just don’t have access to foreign snacks in my area…)

I’m so glad you liked it! I’m not a huge red bean fan either. One time I ordered a bubble tea somewhere and they put beans in it?!?! Not for me.

I am very particular about food textures, and certain “mushy” things really set me off. The first time I ever bought a pack of daifuku from a Japantown on a vacation and bit into it, I nearly became ill right there on the street from the bean paste inside!

The Kumari Gold Organic Black Tea is the exact type of tea that reviewers love to experience. Hours can easily be spent observing this tea. The appearance of the dry leaves, the beautiful color of the liquid, the aroma and taste, and the observation of the infused leaves, were all a pleasure to behold. The time and care put into creating this product can be seen at every stage of analysis. The sweet, fruity, and slightly floral aroma and taste of the tea is remarkable, and how it carries into the aftertaste is also noteworthy. This may be the most impressive tea I have had from this box of samples from Nepal Tea. This is a tea that I would proudly add to my personal collection.
