Thank you Kevin for supplying this beautiful brew. The scent from opening the package was very unexpected. It is a very vibrant floral spice. When I usually use the word floral, scents like Jasmine, orchid, cherry blossoms come to mind. In this situation, this is not the case. Scents of Hibiscus and Rose dominant with undertones of vegetal and kale. I brewed the forest green spirals in my gaiwan. The dry leaves were very downy and variety of colors from a deep green to white and gold. The liquor is a topaz yellow and iridescent. The aroma of green peppercorns and summer grass filled my tea room. This was a very unexpected green tea for me. Its brew tastes sweet and with a tinge of zest. I can note apple blossom and spinach. Its a very fresh and sharp taste. I loved the diversity of this tea. When it is steeped the wet leaves even look like a vibrant seaweed salad. My only complaint is I attempted to treat it as a oolong and steep it excessively. Sadly, this brew grows very bitter. I love this tea and I’m sad that the company is closing.

It is not often when I use the tasting term floral to describe the dominant notes of a green tea, but that is exactly how the Mount Kanchenjunga Nepal Green Tea is described. Imported fresh from the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate in Phidim, eastern Nepal, this green tea immediately became a favorite of mine, which is why I decided to offer it at The Tea Journeyman Shop.

The floral scent begins with the dry leaves and persists through three or more infusions, and even into the used leaves. Notes of roses and light jasmine blend with light grass, mineral, and even a slight muscatel note to create a mouth-filling flavor that will satisfy any green tea enthusiast.

This tea has refreshing and uplifting qualities, and is a great introduction to the high quality orthodox teas that are emerging from eastern Nepal, which neighbors the Sikkim state of India, and the Darjeeling district.
