The 2019 edition of Himalayan Supreme is better than we have had in previous years. This elegant cup comes with notes of almond, cinnamon and honey accents. Very satisfying! Another Jun Chiyabari production that tells the world why Nepal teas are truly exciting.  

DRY LEAF: Hand-rolled, tippy, clean. Woody, cocoa and pepper notes.

INFUSED LEAF: Nutty, grassy, light spice notes cinnamon and cloves.

CUP: A deep gold liquor with spicy nutty aroma. Flavors of  roasted almonds, cinnamon, apricots with dark honey notes gently reveal themselves in this medium body tea. Lingering nutty finish.

Taken to greater heights

Every tea to me is precious, and the more prized, the longer it takes for me to understand and draw out the fullest experience. On the first occasion steeling this tea, the aroma was pure, taste delicate, and somewhat ethereal. I realize that I needed to encourage the leaves with greater abundance, and found on the second occasion a more resilient balance. It does not lack the soaring clarity of a clear winter's sky from a mountaintop. And let me mention the Saigon Jade green; this too I welcomed very softly, and needed to brew stronger, but the the sweetness was even more pronounced with the slight increase in astringency and still the chamomile bloomed int eh cup.
