I love black tea from Nepal. To me it takes the best of India and China black and combines them into one great cup. This one is smooth and malty like my favorite Yunnans. There is just enough fruity edge reminiscent of Assam to build interest without the gut hurting tannins (Or maybe they just don’t hurt me in Nepali teas like an Assam usually does). The taste, of this one at least, is only slightly Darjeeling like. Instead of the Muscat this one leans towards apricot. I don’t recall a single Nepali tea I have not liked. Maybe poor English but you know what I mean. This 1st flush one is very tasty. So much so I did not add sweetener.
My green tea powder arrived today! I can stop watching tracking and start mixing smoothies again – Yeah! (The ‘Yeah!’ is to be said with all the enthusiasm of Kermit the Frog)
