I did not sleep well last night and when I woke up this morning I wanted something basic and soothing. This is a nice medium bodied tea that’s really flavorful… good with soymilk or also good without it, see previous notes if interested. I hope I survive the day!

My first Nepali Tea Traders courtesy of TeaBrat! Yay! I have been wanting to sample some of the NTT stuff for awhile now and this one does not disappoint. Smooth and reminiscent of a darjeeling without most of the dryness. Subtle and mellow – this is a perfect wrap up to this morning’s cookie & candy marathon. Finally sitting down with a nice cup is wonderful. :)

Yesterday morning was cinnamon cookies & chocolate covered peanut butter cookies, truffles, Mexican wedding cookies and fudge with hickory nuts and this morning was pumpkin caramels with pepitas, molasses cookies and sugared bread twists as well as a cherry coconut cheesecake dessert for tonight! Hey, if the oven is on, may as well use it, right? :) Only thing left before tomorrow morning is to frost the cranberry shortbread cookies and thaw the other cookies that have been waiting in the freezer till I got everything else done. Then get them all put on trays and ready to take to work with me & with the husband tomorrow.

Oh, as this tea cools I’m finding maybe a bit of light smokiness hiding in there? And if I swish it around in my mouth, the dryness becomes more pronounced. Thanks, TeaBrat!

I am in culinary awe! It almost did me in figuring out one pecan pie yesterday ;)


My local shop was the first to carry these tea’s (they’re located in Denver) so we got to do a lot if tasting of Nepali Tea Trader’s tea’s. Biggest discovery was the range of temperatures required for these tea’s. If your tea tastes eh…lower the temperature. (I’m hoping that you have more than one of their tea’s to try.)


TeaBrat was kind enough to send a few along, yes. Thanks for the tip!


lol- I still love that my name is TeaBrat. :)


That is a lot of oven using! :D

Another day, another great smaple from NEpali tea. I used a generous helping of leaves in my cast iron tea pot, and used near-boiling water to steep the tea for 15 seconds. The result is interesting, falling somewhere between Darjeelings, Yunnan blacks, and Assams. It has hints of fruity notes like muted Darjeelings, yet it has a bit of Yunnan maltiness (is that even a word?), but not the yunnan texture. It’s actually a bit smoother than an Assam, but the point here is that this tea is similar to many teas, yet has a distinct flavor to make it stand out. Anyway, the smoothness is not quite silky, but still very pleasant, and the aftertaste is a very interesting ligerning smoothness that begins to tingle after a while. I can’t wait to see how it develops.

Well, real life came bursting through my door, and my free time evaporated rather quickly. I didn’t have time to drink more of this tea, and I’m rther disappointed. Hopefully I’ll havce several uninterrupted hours for my next tasting session.

I hope you try each in a gaiwan also. I’d like to know what you think. I only have tasted these teas with a tasting set in a group of 8 so I can’t remember every one (2 stand out though).

I don’t personally own a gaiwan, but the person I’m sharing tea stuff with might have onw. I’ll take a look before I start today’s tea.
