Classification: 1st Flush Nepal Ganesh Himal SFTGFOP1 – black tea
Origin: Nepal, NW of Kathmandu at the foothills of Annapurna conservation area
Leaf: Bright green and brownish large broken leaves with a couple of golden tips releasing a natural essence of wild blossoms, rainy mountains and soaked earth and wet stones.
Infused leaf: Lovely light green leaves with hazelnut brown tips, with an intense aroma of earth after the rain mixed with nearby daffodils and parsley.
Liquor: Clear golden liquor, crisp and bright at start but mellowing into smooth, well rounded and sweet cup. The aroma is of wild tulips, springy daffodils and misty high altitude Himalayan peaks covered by rough herbaceous freshness. The after-taste is pleasant, mildly astringent and leaves you insanely happy.
Contain: 100% Black loose leaf tea from Nepal
About: Nepal produces wonderful black teas with a Darjeeling character. The world’s finest teas are nurtured and influenced by the clean, thin air of high mountain elevations. Altitude slows leaf maturation, which encourages flavour complexity and delicacy in the cup. Nowhere is this more true than for leaf that is plucked in the soaring elevations of the awe-inspiring and rugged Himalaya.
