From Murchie's Tea & Coffee

This is a single origin, organic, black tea from the Himalayas in eastern Nepal, grown just across the border from Darjeeling, India.

Just like Darjeeling teas, the terroir (high mountains, steep terrain, well-drained soil, extreme cold and intense heat, as well as a good level of rainfall) of the Himalayas is a major contributor to the character and floral aroma of this Nepalese tea.

Himalayan Tea also goes through a unique production process to ensure that it maintains its bright, lively, fresh and uplifting flavour that involves a lot of labour and careful monitoring to ensure that a superior product is acheived.

1.5 tsp for 300mL water, 100C, steeped 4 minutes.

Dry leaf: almost half bright green, the rest amber and brown. Very few twigs. Pretty.

Dry aroma: earthy and mineral with something sharp and fresh, faintly floral.

Wet leaf: the green is less bright. Otherwise unchanged.

Wet aroma: earth, rocks.

Liquor: light copper, very heady with florals and muscatel. A bright, fresh, and crisp black tea, medium-strength, very like an assertive Darjeeling yet still its own tea. I’m sure I can also taste cold fresh air. Delicious. Great value for money.
