From Nepali Tea Traders

This tea reflects the beauty and adventure of the Khumbu region of Nepal, gateway to the Everest mountain area and home to the famed Tengboche Monastary. Fresh spring leaves are allowed to oxidize naturally, and then carefully hand rolled producing a beautiful, dense tea. The cup reveals a dark amber liquor and a malty flavor, with hints of rich tobacco and a nutty finish. This tea is brisk and complex, with a well-balanced astringency and mouthfeel.

One teaspoon of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 1 minute, then steep tea 3 – 4 minutes. Tea can be steeped more than once.

Another from yesterday!

Made myself a big mug of it before lunch, then realized that I packed a lunch with a drink in it so I left the tea in the lab on a mug warmer to return to after my lunch break. I guess I didn’t turn the mug warmer on though because when I got back it was super cold. Drank it anyway because it smelled nice – but I’m sure drinking it cold gave me a different experience than I would have got hot.

I thought the mouthfeel was really thick and quite syrupy – really coating and lush, and overall very pleasant to sip on. The taste was interesting because it was also very sweet, but it didn’t taste especially fruity – more of a syrupy mix of prune, cane sugar, malt, wood, and really starchy sweet potato/taro kind of vibes!? Tobacco is a weird descriptor for me (it’s what the company uses) because I don’t have high familiarity with it – I did used to smoke when I was a teenager but that was like seven/eight years ago and I mostly associate the smell/taste of cigarettes with harsh, abrasive smoke and chemicals and I think that’s much different than a “tobacco” note!?

Overall I liked this though – I’ll need to try it hot at some point!

Moderate to high maltiness, higher as it cools. Sour but not bitter notes in the finishing tastes, maybe a bit of tobacco but not smoke. Astringency is moderate. A good, bright tea. I don’t know if I’ll replace when it is gone, but if it were on sale or had no shipping… I’d seriously consider it.
