Jungpana is located in a rather narrow crest in the Himalayas. Hidden from the general view - a road is actually still to connect this tea garden - this garden is recognized for its high quality tea. Many high end stores like Harrods and Mariage (France) purvey Jungpana tea.
We have the pleasure of introducing this tea for our customers for the first time this first flush.
DRY TEA: The leaves are generally small and wiry - indicative of its tenderness when plucked - with a good amount of tips. The colors are largely black/gray with a good amount of green leaf spread. It has a fresh green sweet and vegetal fragrance.
INFUSION: The leaves turn pale and lime green with shots of brown.The nose has a rich fragrance of minty, lemonycharacter combined with floral notes recalling jasmine.
CUP: The liqor is beautiful golden hue and has a nice body. The complex sweet-floral flavor feels good all over the mouth. Simply delicious, in plain English. The tea is brisk, well rounded and has a lovely aftertaste that lingers long after the cup is done. This tea is a good example of a perfect Darjeeling first flush.
BREWING TIME: Not more than 3 mins
OCCASION: A great after-dinner tea.
It's getting hot out there. It's only June and we have a rare heat advisory out today. One of the things you can do to stay cool and energized is make yourself a iced coconut matcha latte. Its a very easy recipe to follow. (Check out the video at the end).
It's getting warm and toasty out there. Guess what's it time for? Iced Tea!!!
Let me share with you today a very easy method of making iced tea. It is a method we use at Leaf Tea Bar. It is a very easy way to make iced tea this way. There is no need to wait for the tea to cool, and you can make this practically with any tea. I love it with Darjeeling first flushes and other lighter delicate teas.
