Tea colour: green tea
Aspect: rolled leaves.
Colour: evenly coloured. Khaki with some slightly paler touches due to the heat treatment.
Scents: vegetal, straw, animal, yellow fruit, notes similar to Pu Er.
Brewed leaves (infusion)
Scents: a very rich fragrance with plenty of notes that arrive at the same time: vegetal, floral, jasmine, toast, yellow fruit and a few hints of spice.
Colour: a very clear liquor with a lovely pale green colour.
Texture: a very supple and round attack, with a greater presence in the middle and back of the palate due to the astringency that develops and lingers.
Flavours: a touch of sweetness.
Aromas: very pleasant fresh yet warm aromas! Vegetal, toast, leather, and a delicate hint of flowers (white flowers) and yellow fruit which brings a richness to the bouquet.
Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: the length is sustained by the astringency and the vegetal, aniseed, mineral and toasted notes.
Our verdict: This excellent tea is from a plantation situated near Mount Everest. It is supple and thick to start. The lingering astringency sustains delicious vegetal and toasted aromas with hints of white flowers and yellow fruit. Truly delicious!
Throughout the year, our experts travel in the tea plantations looking for the best pluckings and new, rare, delicious teas.
The fact that we travel so extensively, that we taste and buy on location has many advantages and allows us to find rare crops by looking outside the traditional supplier circuit, to taste and to share with you the harvests of small plantations, which are often hidden away.
Visiting tea estates regularly and thereby establishing long-lasting relations with our suppliers allows us to guarantee regular quality control of the teas we buy, and to continue our mission: to bring you the best quality teas and to share our travels and experience with you, while concerning ourselves with environmental issues, working conditions on the estates and the fair trade practices to which we adhere.
