Himalayan Shangri La Special Spring Oolong Tea
Here's a high-quality Nepalese oolong from the small-scale producers' cooperative.
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.
Sweet, woody, subtle hints of starch grain and corn in the attack with toasted almond and cashew in the release.
Mix of leggy, well-rolled, blackish-brown leaves, pale green buds, and olive green flakes.
Slightly sweet with notes of cooked greens.
Mix of whole green leaves and brown leaves.
