From SafaHimalaya

From the Jun Chiyabari garden in Nepal, this tea displays a lively vegetal spark followed by an accent of fresh fruit and a chestnut roundness. Partially hand-rolled & tightly twisted to reveal large, full leaves when infused.

The faint yellow-green cup cup belies the brightness of flavor and lingering sweet yet earthy taste, that is very unique for green teas. Enjoy the long-lasting sensation of delicate freshness in this refined high grade green tea.

The loose tea leaves are curled and twisted. Their color a mix from white to dark green and black with some brown intermingled in. The dry aroma is of dry grass, hay and fresh spring tree leaves.

Once brewed the leaves aroma turns sweeter and loses the hay and the dry grass takes a back seat to the spring leaves. It’s rather interesting and refreshing for a green tea.

Quixotically, the aroma from the liquor retains the hay scent. A beautiful golden caramel colored liquor pairs well with this relaxing brew.

The flavor is more astringent than I anticipated. There’s a sweetness in the initial profile but there’s a vegetal twinge which reminds me of steamed spinach or turnip greens, especially with the way it sticks to the tip of the tongue.

This tea is good for about three steeps and should be sipped to savor. Fans of gunpowder green teas, deep shade grown (Fukamushi style) Japanese greens and Darjeeling teas will appreciate this brew.

Richer than the pale color would suggest. Cooling backnote, refreshing.
