Tea Review: White Prakash (Nepal Tea LLC)

White Prakash
Nepal Tea LLC
Type: White
Origin: Nepal, Kanchanjangha Tea Estate
Product Description: White Prakash is the superior quality white tea prepared by Kanchanjngha Tea Estate (KTE). White Tea is considered healthiest of all 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.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of flowers and seasoned wood with a hint of grape.

The infusion is light gold in color with an aroma that is savory, floral, and nutty with dry muscatel grape notes.  The taste is floral, toasty, and lightly savory with just a hint of astringency and a long mildly floral finish.

A 3-minute infusion provided flavorful results throughout multiple infusions, becoming bolder as it progressed.   For those who prefer a milder white tea, a shorter steeping time of 1-1.5 minutes will work well.  The finish was pleasantly intriguing, initially feeling dry and clean before becoming velvety and floral.
