From In Pursuit of Tea

This tea is similar to a Darjeeling second flush, grown just across the border to Nepal and processed in a similar fashion. It comes from the Kuwapani Tea Estate which is located in the foothills of the Himalayas, with the beautiful Makalu peak overlooking the estate. The estate is located at 6000 feet where there is a good balance of sunshine, mist and monsoon rains. The dry leaf is dark brown with plentiful white tips. The aroma is fruity with a subtle citric zest.

I received this as a sample from a Tea Expo, not from Upton or In Pursuit of Tea….it was just a benign little silver packet with “HIMCOOP Kuwapani Tea Plantation” on a label. it is the SFTGFOP version of their Orthodox black tea. No steep or temperature info…so today I was in the mood for something “else”, and I steeped this for 3 minutes western style at 212 degrees. I take milk and sugar in all my tea, and before I added anything I sniffed the tea. It was like a plank of oak came up and hit me in the face. BAM! Ok, this should be interesting. Not a note that the teas I’ve tried usually have, but let’s do this! The tea is a bit weak with the steep parameters I used to truly stand up against the milk and sugar, but I can tell you I’m still getting the woodsy oak, a bit of cocoa, some astringency and a touch of maltiness. Considering my steep was a crapshoot, this could be a really nice tea. I like the idea of buying tea from Nepal, so I may look into their teas a bit more and get some good steeping info if I ever get another sample!

First Impressions, As good as any Second flush Darjeeling, Maybe even better. Taste, Muscatel grape up front, Peach pit middle, and to end it off freshly cut Oak and that sticks with you for about ten min after your sip. Smell, Muscatel then Oak, Really Really nice!!! This is definitely a killer! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
