From Octavia Tea

This award-winning tea comes from Jun Chiyabari—a small, exclusive garden in the lush, Himalayan foothills of Nepal. Owned by two brothers, this garden is famous not only for its world-class, boutique teas, but also for its generosity and commitment to the surrounding community. Savor this tea’s incredibly smooth, rich flavor with notes of roasted peanut and accents of orange blossom honey and caramel.

Located only 50 miles from the legendary, tea-producing region of Darjeeling, the Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden (literal translation – ‘full moonlit tea garden’) has gained worldwide prestige in just the 10 years since it was founded.

Jun Chiyabari’s pure mountain water and incredibly high elevations (around 6000 feet) create elegant flavors and extraordinarily complex aromatics in the leaf. The clouds and mist hugging the steep terrain encourages the tea plants to produce extra chlorophyll and nutrients in the effort to photosynthesize and grow.

This tea won a 2nd place award in the Black Tea category at the 2013 North American Tea Championships.

Origin: Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden – Hile, Nepal
NET WT (per tin): 1.2 oz (34 g)

Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge – August Tea #5 – A tea chosen at random

A “random” tea means asking google for two random numbers:  A Steepster cupboard page number and another number 1-18 for the specific tea.  I gave myself three chances and the third landed on this tea.  So time for a sipdown.  I do enjoy this light tea.  It’s a bit like Taiwanese Assam, though not as nuanced.  The old Butiki tea has more nuance than this fresher tea.  Therefore, I’m happy it’s a sipdown.

That is a neat way to choose random! I was just going to close my eyes and grab, or ask Ashley to grab which would probably cause him to panic…

Since mine are all in a spreadsheet, I can just use one random number to select a row, woo-hoo!

I have a “select a random number” function built into my spreadsheet, hahaha.
