Tea of the day: Nepal Green

Good evening Steepers!

I’m gonna try to get back into the habit of blogging mini reviews for my tea of the day. So without further adieu today I picked up Nepal Green; one of the new limited time Garden to Cup collection teas from David’s Tea. Every so often they release teas picked and dried, super fresh straight from little tea farms (plantations?). This time around they released a green tea from Nepal with similar flavours to the Nepal Black tea from DT with delicious honey notes. The tea guide told me this one has those same lightly sweet flavours with minimal astringency.

…and I just took my first sip and he was right on the dot. This tea is light with those notes of honey and grassyness that isn’t too earthy or rich. It also has a nice golden colour that’s a little lighter than the usual green tea colours I get.
Because this tea is so fresh I was extra careful and boiled my water to 80°C and steeped for 1.5 minutes. And I will do a second steep with the same parameters to see what flavours come out the second time around. I also drink pure green tea straight and take care when preparing making sure to use the correct temperature and steeping time.

"Nestled high up in the Himalayan foothills lies a little organic tea garden named Jun Chiyabari. Known for their sustainable, organic farming practices, they also offer support to the local community, with a special emphasis on women’s empowerment. In fact, over 80% of their employees are women, from the tea field to the supervisors. And they also happen to make some seriously amazing tea. With warm days and cool mountain nights, the tea leaves grow slower, allowing their tea oils more time to develop for richer, more complex teas. Hand-plucked and sorted, this late-summer harvest green tea has a clean, ethereal taste, with notes of the forest, sweet grasses and muscat grape. Rushed to our shelves as soon as it’s ready, it’s one limited edition treasure that’s worth rushing for."

Second Steep: the fruitier notes are coming through. Still light and smooth like before. I am quite liking this tea!

Thanks for reading. Let me know what posts you want to see or reviews you want!
