I normally drink a lot of Taiwan teas, and it was fun to give this Nepalese tea a try.
Really solid tea, unique character of Nepal for sure. Give it a try.
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. It was harvested in the Spring season of 2015 in Eastern Nepal’s Ilam District (ILAM DISTRICT ON GOOGLE MAPS), which shares a border with India’s Darjeeling district. Processing was minimal but impeccable. It was hand picked, withered, and simply baked before drying.
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.
