My last Nepal Tea sampler packet! The dry leaf looks more like a black tea to me, and the aroma of the dry leaves is very muscatel.

Steeped half the packet (4.7g) in 500ml 205F water for 3 minutes. The steeped tea also has a fruity muscatel aroma, but much stronger is a cocoa aroma (which I rarely smell in teas). Also a floral honey aroma note.

Mmm. I think I’d rank this in my favorites from all the Nepal Tea samplers. There is a deep cocoa and earthy mineral flavor, with a more subtle roasty/smoky element. There is a bit of a Darjeeling-esqe muscatel note, as well. The aftertaste on my tongue is sort of a muddle spices and plum flavor, and some lingering floral rose.

Very enjoyable!

Those notes remind me of the Ruby Darjeeling Oolong I got from Young Mountain two years ago that I still haven’t finished. It personally tastes more like a black tea than an oolong, even having yellow trichomes. Sweet, but it’s got a drying back bone I’m not a fan of.

This one also reminds me more of a black tea than an oolong, but I quite enjoyed it!

The more I drank this the more I appreciated it. Oolongs can be a bit too “toasty” for my taste but this had more of a subtle toasted flavor that I could appreciate. As someone else said, it’s not an every day tea but it’s one I’d like to have on hand.
