From Tealet

An unusual oolong tea with the appearance of a white tea. Wonderfully complex, with lush radish and musky vanilla flavors with hay and spice undertones. Grown at 2200m altitude in Pathivara Tea Estate.

• • •

Pathivara Tea Estate is in Panchthar, Nepal, one of the most impoverished areas in Nepal. Supporting specialty tea from the area can significantly contribute to the conditions there. Instead of selling tea for very cheap to India, Nepal can make its own name in tea and demand more prices.

Nepal’s high altitude and experienced tea makers combine to create unusual teas like these. At high altitude there is a greater temperature difference between night and day, which is better for growing tea.

This is a bit of an odd tea. I cant quite wrap myself completely around this one. Its an oolong, but it looks tastes and acts like a white tea.

I started by brewing this at 200 for about 25 seconds, in a glass pot. Despite not being a big fan of oolongs in glass, I think glass works extremely well for white tea. So I brewed it like a white tea.. this seems to be a wise decision. Because you get all the flavors you would expect out of an aged white, subtle honey, flowers and sweet notes in a pale honey color liqour.

The flavor is somewhere between an oriental beauty and white peony. Now that I think about it, thats a really good description. Its like an oriental beauty and a white peony had a love child.. that is exactly what it tastes like.

In the description it mentions radish and vanilla, I very occasionally get the vanilla notes, but i dont seem to pick up anything vegetal in this.

I do recommend this for people who are looking for something new and interesting to try. If you are, contact Tealet for this very interesting tea.
