It is not often when I use the tasting term floral to describe the dominant notes of a green tea, but that is exactly how the Mount Kanchenjunga Nepal Green Tea is described. Imported fresh from the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate in Phidim, eastern Nepal, this green tea immediately became a favorite of mine, which is why I decided to offer it at The Tea Journeyman Shop.
The floral scent begins with the dry leaves and persists through three or more infusions, and even into the used leaves. Notes of roses and light jasmine blend with light grass, mineral, and even a slight muscatel note to create a mouth-filling flavor that will satisfy any green tea enthusiast.
This tea has refreshing and uplifting qualities, and is a great introduction to the high quality orthodox teas that are emerging from eastern Nepal, which neighbors the Sikkim state of India, and the Darjeeling district.
Flavors: Grass, Jasmine, Mineral, Rose
