From Nepali Tea Traders

Named for Nepal’s “dazzling, white beautiful mountain,” this delightful first flush white tea releases all of the purity and freshness of our Himalayan highlands. One leaf and a bud are hand-plucked and left overnight in the cool spring air for the mildest form of natural oxidation, then gently hand-rolled. Dhulagiri is a sweet, crispy white tea with a lovely floral aroma.

Sipdown! 265/365!

This is nice. And since I’ve had a decent amount of straight white teas lately, I can identify that this one seems almost a bit smokier, and there’s an interesting sort of vegetal note that I’m having trouble placing. Maybe a bit squashy? Grassy? A different flavour, though. I actually think it reminds me of pulling weeds – just a kind of fresh vegetation flavour. Anyhow, I like others better, but this was an interesting one to have tried.

The leaves here had a very soft texture, and were a medium sage green colour with the occasional white fuzzy tip. The texture was reminiscent of grass clippings: tangled, curly, piled up.

The aroma is what really sets this tea apart: it smelled very much like a Bai Mu Dan tea, with notes of flowers, peach, and pears. There was a slight mustiness underneath, but that just enhanced things.

I used the full packet of dry leaf but brewed it with 1 litre of cold water rather than 2.

Of the white teas I’ve tried by Nepali Tea Traders so far, this was by far the sweetest and most delectable. Floral, soft, and mouth-coating. This one is a winner.

The scent is buttery, grassy, and sweet. The beginning of the aroma smells like green tea but finishes closer to an oolong. I really like the flavor of this tea because it is sweet and floral, reminding me of blooming jasmine teas, but it is grounded and well balanced.

Another one from the SSTTB…this is an Amoda sample. It’s a white tea from Nepal I think. It is quite smooth, and has a medium body, for a white, maybe even a little heavier. There is a sweet note, and a little fuzzy on my tongue. I can almost pick out a cherry or plum feel to it, like you might find in a darker oolong, but not as strong. This is actually a fairly relaxing tea to drink. I like it!

I’ve never heard of this tea company before I found samples of some of their teas in the Canadian Traveling Teabox. But I’ve had a look at their site and their teas sound quite interesting, so you might be seeing more reviews on their products from me in the future.

Non-Chinese white teas are a relatively new thing to me, but this one seems to take some of the traits from a traditional bai mu dan and mix them with characteristics I usually associate with Indian teas. The flavour is quite green and fresh – it’s vegetal but gently sweet at the same time. Then there’s an interesting muscatel-like note that comes in at the end and lingers in the mouth much like what you’d taste in a Nepali and Darjeeling black tea. Very enjoyable.

Backlog:

Another lovely, lovely tea from Nepali Tea Traders. You can read my full-length review here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/05/28/dhulagiri-white-tea-from-nepali-tea-traders/

A sweet and refreshing cuppa, notes of melon and a fresh, lively taste. Delicate. Not overly vegetative, but there is a sort of “green” type of taste. Not really “haylike” the way some white teas can be. It tastes greener. It’s very clean and fresh.

A lovely, rejuvenating tea. I’m still quite sad that Amoda is no more.

This is one of the teas from the last Amoda box from May. :’(

The dry leaves look a little more green than a lot of whites do, although the size and texture is definitely a white. The smell reminds me of when you cut your grass but the grass is dry, like on a really hot summer day or in the fall that last cut before winter. Kind of like hay, but still grassy.

After a three minute steep, the liquor is darker than I was expecting, a beautiful color, just a little darker than normal, yellow barely tinging on orange. The scent was sweetish, floralish. It tastes somewhat floral, somewhat vegetable. It took me a while to decide that it’s actually mushroomish.

This is different than most whites. The flavor is stronger. I like it.
