I got some of this tea from a wholesaler in Kathmandu. It is quite unique, definitely worth trying out. It has been lightly roasted as a result of which the tea is different from standard green teas. There is very little of the vegetal aspect, it is more herbal and smoky on the other hand. The closest taste is probably sage, but in the aftertaste some mint appears too. I found some nuttiness too, but I can’t quite categorize it right now. Due to the roasting process, the astringency is lighter, but still present for sure. When brewed gong fu style, the mouthfeel is decent too. All in all, an interesting tea that I am glad I tried out.
