description

If there is one oolong that can compete in the same league as the Taiwanese and the Chinese kind it has to be this Nepalese offering. The rigors of high elevation, mineral-rich terrain, and cool air allow the plants to grow slowly resulting in an immensely flavorful tea. Also interesting is the fact that it’s from the country’s small-scale producers’ cooperative which produces small batches of orthodox teas.

aroma:
Pulpy yellow fruit in the attack followed by hints of tomato seed and malt.
appearance:
Gold
taste:
Mellow, smooth and medium bodied, the liquor features a complex mix of flavors. Sweet floral notes, resembling orchid flowers, make way for mild vegetal ones. The flavors do not linger long and turn quickly.
COMPLEMENTS:
Ideal as a palate cleanser between food courses.
