Tea Review: Organic Nepali Green Pearl (Young Mountain)

Organic Nepali Green Pearl
Young Mountain
Type: Green
Origin: Nepal, Ilam District
Product Description:
Nepali Green Pearl is a fresh, strong organic green tea rolled into tight pearls. The tea makers at the Tinjure Cooperative carefully shape the leaf using heated pans, coaxing out a wide range of aromas and flavors that are best explored by steeping the same leaves at least twice.
Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have a nutty, green, and mossy aroma.

The liquor is pale green with an aroma that is nutty and green with steamed green vegetal/spinach-like notes.  The taste is lightly astringent, green, and nutty with a nutty finish.

The fullest flavor is in the first two infusion with deep green vegetal notes.  I particularly enjoyed the third infusion which, while mellower, had developed a lovely sweetness.
