These young buds have been painstakingly hand-picked and simply dried to create a lovely silver needles style white tea. This minimal processing creates a finished tea with a crystal clear, pale yellow infusion and a sweet aroma reminiscent of newly dried straw. The liquor is light-bodied with a hay-like sweetness, mild floral notes and a touch of summery stonefruit in the finish.
Nepali Jade is a gorgeous green tea, plucked to an extremely high one bud and one leaf standard and left unrolled to preserve the natural appearance of the leaf. The dry leaf aroma is light and sweet like fresh-cut grass, and when infused it produces a beautiful, crystal clear, pale jade liquor with a light, fresh aroma. The light-bodied infusion is mild and grassy-sweet with hints of baby green vegetables, almost no astringency, and a very clean, refreshing finish.
The woody, musky, & sweet-smelling dry leaves are a mix of black and dark, coppery browns and has a good scattering of silvery-gold buds. When infused, the leaves produce a crystal clear, reddish amber liquor with a musky, woody & lightly floral nose. In the cup, the infusion is brisk and full bodied with a distinct black tea taste, very pleasant and well balanced astringency, and a remarkably floral and sweet aftertaste with hints of dried stonefruit (peaches/plums), raisins and maybe just a touch of dried flower petals.
The loosely ball-rolled leaves are deep chestnut brown with a light woody-sweet aroma. When infused, they produce a reddish honey-amber liquor with toasty, fruity elements in the nose. Because of the long, slow, careful roasting process, the medium bodied infusion presents a balance between the flavor of toasted (not smoky or burned) barley, and the underlying sweet, woody, fruity flavors and aromas naturally produced by the Tie Guan Yin tea plant variety. The finish is sweet and long lasting with elements of dried stonefruit and just a hint of cocoa at the end.
