From Upton Tea Imports

Grown at an altitude of 4,200 feet, this second flush Nepal black tea offers a smooth sweet cup, steeped from premium, silver-tipped leaves. Hinting of almond, a warm toasty fragrance introduces the rich amber liquor. A lively mouth feel enhances notes of honey and dried fruit, which lead to a clean, brisk finish.

Sipdown for National Compliment Day!

It’s National Compliment Day, and I’m giving this beautiful tea a huge shout out. It embodies so many of the things that I adore from the teas from Nepal. There is a muscatal note along with sweet hay. It’s light and clean with the slightest hint of mineral at the end of the sip. I’m a big fan of muscadine notes in tea. I know Darjeeling teas are best known for that flavor, but I feel like so many teas from Nepal showcase it beautifully. This tea is no exception. In fact, it does it to near perfection. The muscatal note is present without having an artificial grape flavor or a wine-y taste. This is a total win in my book.

I would love to pick up more of this at some point. Unfortunately Upton only sells this in 100g or larger quantities, and while I truly love this tea I’m just not in the market for 100+ grams of any tea. * sigh *

Lovely description! Upton does a good job with their unique black teas…I haven’t ordered for a while so they haven’t sent a catalog my way for a while, but I used to read them like novels.

I’m do the same thing with Upton’s catalog. I love the articles they write about tea history, but I really love reading their descriptions on all of their teas. I’ve had a couple of days where I grabbed my Upton catalog and various seed/gardening catalogs and made wishlist of teas to drink and plants I want to grow. Kind of like the Toys R Us catalog for adults. :)

Or the Sears Christmas Wish Book … (yes, I’m dating myself here).
