From What-Cha

An incredibly smooth floral tea both in aroma and taste which really dials up the floral characteristics typically associated with first flush Darjeelings.

This tea has been labelled by Greenland Organic Farm as their ‘signature tea’ as they feel it is one of their best and most unique creations.

Sourced direct from Greenland Organic Farm, who are very much at the forefront of a burgeoning Nepali tea industry dedicated to producing high quality artisanal teas.

It’s taken me awhile, but I’m finally beginning to get into some of the black teas produced in Nepal. This was my latest sipdown, and I found it to be very unique and enjoyable. For once, I was not overly tempted to compare a Nepalese tea to a Darjeeling.

I prepared this tea in the Western style. I steeped 3-4 grams of loose tea leaves in approximately 8 ounces of 194 F water for 5 minutes. I did not attempt any additional infusions.

Prior to infusion, the dry tea leaves emitted mild aromas of citrus, straw, flowers, and Muscatel. After infusion, I detected robust aromas of dandelion, marigold, rose, chrysanthemum, malt, straw, mandarin orange, Muscatel, and lemon zest underscored by a subtle smokiness. In the mouth, I picked up strong notes of chrysanthemum, dandelion, marigold, rose, lemon zest, mandarin orange, and Muscatel which quickly softened to reveal notes of malt, grass, straw, smoke, almond, sweet corn, pine, and wintergreen. The finish sported a unique mix of flowers, citrus, straw, sweet corn, and cooling wintergreen.

This was such a quirky tea, and may I add that the leaves were beautiful. This was definitely a quality picking. I wasn’t expecting this tea to be so robustly aromatic and flavorful, but I ended up enjoying it. I would not want to have it on a regular basis, but I would likely spring for it again if given the opportunity.

I almost bought it before it sold out, cause dang that looks cool to try. I am so thankful Alistair offers the sample sizes he does. It’s always fun to get variety anyway then turn back for the best picks later.

Has a very naturally sweet fresh aroma and thin spiny black and cream dry leaves.
I brewed it at 85 c until it was a clear light gold colour. The tea itself has an incredibly delicate and refreshing flavour, with an aroma of sweet dried fruit that fills the nose nicely.

Flavour started to diminish at the 7th infusion, and soon gave up at the 9th.

Also, quite a smell and powerful flavor, I certainly wasn’t expecting that.
It was very nice to have a tea with such a strong flavor every once in a while.

Long, twisty leaves with light gold tips. Smells hay and sweet. 4g, 100ml gaiwan, 198F

10s- strong floral aroma, sugar snap pea, sweet, buttery, floral aftertaste. Floral taste is strong and distinct, but I couldn’t figure out what I’d liken it to.
20s- floral, little bit of green, pea. Though, it’s a black tea, it reminds me a good deal of a greener oolong based on flavor profile and way steeped leaves look.
30s- floral, dry at tip of tongue, green, vegetal
40s- floral, pretty dry. Enough that I backed off steep time for the last two steeps
20s – sweeter, less dry
20s- floral, but fading

Great fresh black tea from Nepal, purchased through What-Cha. The tea itself is quite similar in aroma to a fresh first flush Darjeeling black tea. The leaves, however, are whole and thus are a bit more sturdy than a CTC Darjeeling. The flavor is smooth with a bit of crisp astringency, and the aroma intense and satisfying.
