Description

Nepalese Sakhira First Flush 2022

From the Ilam area of Eastern Nepal comes this attractively green, tippy tea with a lovely fresh straw and floral aroma. In the cup this Nepalese First Flush is pale gold with medium-light body. Whilst it is a first flush it does not have an overtly astringent aspect, in fact it is noticeably smooth, subtly floral and herbaceous with a long finish. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly drawn and boiled water. Infuse for five minutes. Best drunk without milk.

    A light, bright, flavourful tea! Nice to have in the evening without worrying about being kept awake. I brewed it at 80 degrees Celsius and it was very smooth. Glad to have this one in my collection 🙂
