From Whispering Pines Tea Company

This is an organically produced black tea from a remote tea garden in the high mountains (1700m above sea level) of Nepal. When I first tasted this tea, I was blown away by the cleanliness of the taste, and I said “these (this tea and Nepal Black) taste exactly what I would imagine organic black teas from the high mountains of Nepal would taste like”.

My palette is trained mostly for Chinese and Taiwanese teas, so this one has been a bit tough for me to describe, but I’ll try my best!

The flavor is, again, distinctly clean. Compared to Nepal Black, the gold tip version is much more “airy”, with brighter florals and an almost tropical fruit feel to it. It’s like open meadows and summer herbs, with orange blossom honey and a velvety texture. An awesome black tea that I’m grateful to have been able to source!

I lightened up the leaf to 3 grams and 5 oz western this morning. The overall profile was brighter on the orange blossom end and less malty, but very viscous and malty overall. There’s still a lot of dryness, and personally something that reminds me of medium to darker beer ales, giving me some oats and barley malt. Maybe it’s something else lighter like wheat, but this tea gives me a dry beer vibe. Watching the leaves unfurl into a caramel gold color was pretty cool.

I was hoping for more sweetness on this one, but it’s on the drier end of golden bud teas. There’s decent layers and complexity to it even though I need some sweeter notes to balance the dryness for my palette. I think this tea would be great for people who like malty teas or need a higher end lunchtime kind of tea. It’s still delicate enough for later times while retaining heavier elements if you push the leaf. I enjoyed it, though I can see someone else enjoying the remaining grams more than I will.
