From Happy Earth Tea

A beautiful late spring 2015 Nepal tea from Jun Chiyabari with lush notes of orchids, nuts and peach. One of our favorites!

DRY LEAF: Soft bold leaves with abundant tips and notes of hay, grass and pepper. Although the tea maker describes it as a fully oxidized tea, the leaves still bear a green character achieved through hard withering.

INFUSION: Olive and brown with an exquisitely floral nose.

CUP: The liquor has a light golden sparkle with a highly pleasing floral aroma together with strong notes of peach and ripe mango. Lovely complexity in the mouth with a slight briskness, and a long refreshing aftertaste.

I’ve had this for quite some time, and I finally have drank my last pot. Luckily, this is just in time for spring harvest. You open the package and you are enveloped with these fragrant small emerald green and platinum leaves. They give off a beautiful fresh flower (daises), hay, and dry grass aroma. I pulled out my trusty tetsubin, and I got to brewing. First, the taste begins with a sweet mango tang; however, this flavor quickly fades away as the palette readjusts to the liquor. Then, the cup moves into a honey dipped peach taste that has a lingering astringency. Finally, the brew is surrounded with a drying grass taste and a pleasant orchid background. The drink leaves your palette with a nice lingering sweetness and a well oiled tongue. This tea is a fantastic spring time drink. The cuppa is a nice and well rounded liquor filled with soft spoken and curbed tones. This tea doesn’t carry any of the traditional “crisp” first flush tones. Instead, this tea yields a pleasant gardenesque quality that is light and airy, yet it still carries a nice full body. I am sad to not have any leftover, but I know I will be picking some more up in time for spring harvest. I highly recommend checking this company out, for they have “darjeeling” suiting anyone’s taste. In my experience, if you want a nice light flowery cuppa or a deeper and heavier bodied liquor they are sure to carry it.

Recently I read Haveteawilltravel’s review of Arya Ruby First Flush and it made me want to try the tea so much I went straight to the website and picked up a few samples. The review combined with my growing anticipation for the first flush season effectively put an end to my temporary halt on tea purchases and I can’t say that I regret it because along with the four samples I ordered, they also sent 3-4 additional samples. Needless to say this was an exciting box to open.

This is the first sample I have tried out of the bunch, and if the rest of them at all like this one I will definitely be ordering from them again. The leaves are beautiful and have been well cared for. Despite being almost a year old it still tastes incredibly fresh. There are notes of peach, apricot, flowers in the spring air and just the perfect amount of that Darjeeling-like astringency. Actually, the best description of this tea is the one included on the website. It might be the most accurate vendor description of a tea that I have read. Overall an excellent experience.

Thank you Haveteawilltravel for pointing me to this company!

Excellent. Trust me you will love the Arya – its really delish. Did you pick up the singbulli as well? I’ve had a singbulli ‘silk’ before which is another i really liked.
