This Nepali tea sample is courtesy of Meowster’s 2018 cupboard destash. Thanks Meowster!

Steeped 3.5g in 500ml 205F water for 3 minutes. The brewed tea smells of cinnamon raisin bread, warm cherry compote, and a hint of lemon citrus. The smell is more impressive than the taste, but I suspect age hasn’t done this tea any favors. It’s coming off a bit abrasive, with a bit of a malty/bready base with a hint of cinnamon spice and a very strong citrus taste. Near the end of the sip I can just slightly taste a cherry note and a hint of florality, but it fades quickly under the bitter/astringent edge. A bitterness is left on my tongue in the aftertaste.

Probably my least favorite of the Nepali teas I’ve tried this month. I may try playing around with water temperature for my next two cups and see if that doesn’t tame it a little more. But perhaps age has just let the beast out with this one.

In theory, it sounds wonderful—I don’t remember seeing it the last time I perused an Upton catalog.
