Origin: Nepal, Kanchanjangha Tea Estate
Product Description: A specially rolled green premium pluck with a medium body and prominent marine flavors of fresh salmon, kelp and seaweed.
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes
The dry leaves have a sweet and peppery aroma with notes of seasoned wood, nori, and a hint of smoke.
The infusion is pale green infusion with a savory, nutty, and faintly marine green aroma. The taste is smooth, nutty, and lightly buttery with a touch of astringency and a long refreshing green finish.
As the tea leaves unfurled, more flavor and aroma notes developed. Though I prefer the savory low astringency results from a two minute steep, a longer steeping time after the first infusion did bring out intriguing new flavors including floral notes, accompanied by moderate astringency.
