Tea Review: Ama Dablam Organic White Tea (Nepali Tea Traders)

Ama Dablam Organic White Tea
Nepali Tea Traders
Type: White
Origin: Nepal
Product Description: Named after a beautiful peak in Eastern Nepal, which means “mother’s necklace,” This white autumnal tea is grown and is made from a bud with one leaf shoot from a specially cultivated plant. The tea is dried naturally, fired and then cured for more than a month so the flavor profile develops to the optimum level. The liquor is very pale golden, has a mild floral aroma and a soothing sweet finish, devoid of astringency, and grassy flavors.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 4 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of seasoned wood, oats, pepper, and hay.

The pale golden peach infusion has a light aroma of flowers, sunflower seeds, green vine, and baked root vegetables.  The taste is is savory with notes of sunflower seeds and something that reminds me of wild-grown greens.

Steeping for 4 minutes brought out the best results for my preferences.  Shorter steeping times at a slightly higher water temperature will also have good results.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
