From Rare Tea Republic

Sandakphu is the highest peak in West Bengal and it is claimed by both India and Nepal. This small tea garden takes its name from the mountain and is known for its single variety teas. Laboriously plucked from a single clonal variety on the first day of summer, this tea is an exceptional expression of a hand-crafted Nepali tea. A neat sage green and silver leaf delivers a smooth and sweet flavor reminiscent of cooked peas. There is a mild astringency, a slightly smoky essence and a lingering finish. Plucking date: June 24, 2011.

I am almost out of this. :(
So I wonder why Rare Tea Republic does not have any first flush teas yet like the rest of the world. You’d think if they were owned by Republic of Tea they’d be on it. According to their blog they will have some Goomtee teas in by the end of the month.

Maybe I will get some more of this excellent white tea if and when the 2012 selection comes around.

I just got an email from RoT saying their first flush darjeelings have just arrived in limited quantities.

TeaBrat

Oooh. They’re not on the website yet! :)

Cheryl

“limited quantities” in RoT speak = these are gonna cost you, big time, hehe

I have some other things I wanted to order from RtR, but I have been waiting and waiting on their FF Darjeeling so I could just place one order. Hurry up, RtR!

As far as I know, they aren’t owned by Republic of Tea, actually…you can see in their blog they have been on a buying trip, so I’m sure it’s just a matter of time…

Shinobi_cha

Wow, cool… you learn something new everyday! I did think RTR’s name was awfully similar…. that explains it!

Thank s for the link Amy. This is one tea I am going to buy from RTR.

It is very good. I also like the Shangri La white.

This reminds me of a cross between a green and a white tea. Slightly vegetal but more like fresh peas than a leafy green type vegetal taste. This is a really nice tea! High quality leaf, aroma, and taste! I like this very much!
