This is my first tea from Nepal. Upton says it is a peak-season selection from the Misty Valley Estate in the Ilam district. I was interested in trying this because Nepal is high in the Himalayan Mountains like the Darjeeling District in India with a similar climate. Their teas are said to have a comparable taste but can be more affordable. Lately, I’ve been enjoying some Darjeeling teas finding them to be an interesting and unique change of pace from other black teas that I typically drink. If I didn’t know better,as I sip this,I would assume it was a Darjeeling. Apparently my palate is not sophisticated enough to tell the difference. The dry and wet leaf, along with the brew itself have a very nice fragrance. The flavor is light and complex with a nice balance of musky sweetness and slight astringency. The brew is smooth and clean with some fruity notes. As I sip it, I can imagine that much of what makes it so appealing comes from the misty fresh mountain air. I’d recommend this selection, especially to Darjeeling fans.

As a darj fan, I really enjoy some of the Nepal teas! At least for now they’re a great value too.

A sad moment. I’m sipping down the last of my mist valley. Also, an embarrassing moment, since I discovered that I haven’t taken the time to write a review for Steepster.

This tea isn’t great, but is a very good, solid Darjeeling-style second flush tea from Nepal. It is resistant to oversteeping, so when I just dump some in a pot and then oversteep, it still comes out well. Classic Darjeeling taste with a bit of stone fruit.

Just got my new Upton print catalog. Looking forward to poring over it soon!
