From Nepal Tea

White Prakash is our superior quality white tea and is considered healthiest of all our teas. This is primarily because it is made from the baby plant only in a special time in the spring and undergoes virtually no processing.

It has finally cooled down enough that the thought of a warm cup of tea in the morning is palatable again… especially so as we are living under a cloud of forest fire smoke that has made my throat and chest irritated for days.

I really enjoyed Nepal Tea’s “White Prakash”. This was in my sampler pack from the San Francisco International Tea Festival 2018, but isn’t listed on their website. The packet looks the same as the White Prakash, but “1st Flush” is hand-written on it. The leaves look different as well… these are really full and fluffy (resulting in 3.5g inside the packet) while the regular White Prakash packet had smaller, more needle-like leaves (resulting in 6.5g inside the packet).

I brewed the full 3.5g packet in 180F water, steeped for 3 minutes. It smells like honey graham biscuits with some wildflower florality as it cools in my cup. I’m getting notes of buttered vegetables, hay, and wildflower honey. The flavor is more buttery/floral with a more dominant hay note than I got in the regular White Prakash cold brewed. I’m also not getting the strong citrus note I got in the White Prakash cold brew in this tea at all. Not sure how much of the differences are due to this being a First Flush vs. warm brewing this tea and cold brewing the other one.

Still enjoying this, but I liked the regular White Prakash cold brew a bit more.

Went to the SF tea festival and picked some of this up after sampling. The tea maker was there talking about how this tea is from his backyard. His backyard is a tea farm of many acres, so not the small yard I was first imagining when he was describing it. They say the company gives back to the community and workers, so that is nice to hear after reading about other tea plantations that treat their workers poorly.
The tea has a very light grassy taste. It isn’t a bright flavor, but is subtle and mellow. The tea has an almost sweet quality to is as well. My mouth is left slightly dry after the sip where the flavors linger briefly then fade. It’s a nice cup when I want something subtle.

Awesome to hear about companies like this that appreciate their workforce!

I bought the sampler pouch from them, and it has this one in it! I haven’t tried it yet, though.

Ethical and thoughtful companies are the best! Gives me a little hope that all is not lost.
I didn’t see a sampler pack! Nice!
