Nepal FTGFOP 1 Maloom First Flush
Maloom’s small tea plantation locates at Himalayas, where tea is produced with special care. Tea has been plucked at the beginning of season as the new leaves have blossomed. The tea has many closed tips. Flowery, aromatic, pleasant taste and a balanced colour.
Fully comparable to hi-class Darjeling varieties.
A happy surprise to even a demanding expert.
I brewed it at 85°C 1minute, drowning the tea infuser into the water.
As I slurp introducing air ah so noisily it revealed flowery nutty flavour with more precence and aftertaste than most of the top noch DJ’s I’v tasted thus far. This was the case for the batch of 2009-2010.
Btw, I prefer red tea classification over to the black.
