From Happy Earth Tea

A superb second flush production from Jun! The craftsmanship is brilliant, right from its aroma and appearance to its inspired finish.

DRY LEAF: Long wiry leaves with an unusual crispness for teas from the Himalayas. Recalls wuyi rock oolong in appearance, but with a more finer leaves. Rich aroma of dark chocolate and burnt caramel that you’ll keep sniffing.

INFUSION: The leaves appear cocoa with a nose of plum, chocolate, caramel and spice.

CUP: The liquor is dark honey with a sweet fruity fragrance. A delicate creaminess coats the palate with rich notes of plum and caramel together with spicy hints.

The second flush production in Nepal took place in the aftermath of the devastating Nepal earthquake. We have deep admiration for Jun Chiyabari for not letting up in their pursuit for Quality despite the enormous challenges that it faced due to the natural disaster.

I received a sample of this in my Christmas card from Haveteawilltravel. I’ve never heard of this company before, but I’m impressed by this particular tea! The leaves are BIG (tough to measure accurately; this is one of those teas that makes me wish I had a scale) and have a nice malty aroma when you open up the bag. Steeped, the tea is smooth and rich with a nice plummy flavor. A great tea to start the day with!

Good morning Steepster. My day did not get off to a good start as I already spilled a cup of coffee on myself and the floor of the cafe I was at this morning. Maybe this is a sign I should give up on coffee?

I got this as a small sample pack from Happy Earth a while back. I didn’t time my steeping too closely, so I would say this is a pretty forgiving tea. This stuff is also truly delicious! I am definitely getting the notes of chocolate, malt and spice. It does have a slight fruitiness in the finish. They call it plum, I was thinking red wine. It’s a very rich and bold tea, it stands up well on its own but mght also be nice with a touch of milk. Another quality Nepalese tea from Happy Earth. So glad I tried this one, I might need more :)
