Nepalese Maloom: Smooth muscat notes

Nepalese Maloom is an aromatic, light and fruity tea from this relatively young garden. The leaf is tippy and elegantly formed giving a sweet, heady and very appealing aroma. In the cup Maloom has a deep amber colour, a light to medium body with good sweetish, muscat flavours. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for three minutes. Drink without milk.

Another excellent Nepali tea "I put this tea on a par with the wonderful Katmandhu tea, although they are very different in taste: Maloom is more mellow, less astringent and is probably better suited to drinkers who normally drink Assam or Darjeeling. But it still has that unique Nepali tang. I drink it with a tiny drop of milk"
Light but nice "This tea lacks depth so if you like teas which are more robust I would not recommend it. If, however, you enjoy lighter teas this is a good one to add after you have bought 'the usual'. It is a light tea - good in summer I expect - but makes up for that with fruity undertones. Give it a go."
"Another fine Nepalese brew. Dark in colour and exceptional in taste."
Refreshing, well-balanced tea "A well balanced tea. Gently floral with a touch of sweetness and a long finish. Will take milk if brewed a little stronger."
A good all-rounder "In the manner of Goldilocks; not to light, not too strong, this one is 'just right!'"

Tea from Grey's Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Nepalese Maloom has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Packing options

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

Delivery options

For delivery our standard shipping is second class post unless you choose an alternative option such as first class post or courier. Free UK shipping is available for orders over £30 and free first class post can be chosen for orders over £50.

Storing your tea

    Having tasted them both side by side, this tea seems a pretty good substitute for darjeeling first flush, at a much more affordable price. Service was swift and efficient.

    Service: Yet again Greys have taken my order, cashed in my payment, sent this questionnaire but not delivered the tea!. I had to send 3 – increasingly annoyed – emails last time. When I buy tea from NBT of F&M it arrives without hassle the following day. Yet this virtually never happens with Greys
    Vendor response: I am sorry you have this view which is not reflected in the experience of the vast majority of our other customers. Your order was despatched within four days. There was some delay whilst we awaited additional stock. We have received no communication from you.

    Drunk as an alternative to a Darjeeling in the evening, and makes a light fragrant cup. We do add a tiny splash of milk, which we think it can take.
    Delivery and customer service queries always prompt and reliable.

    First Nepalese tea I’ve tried. The price of Darjeeling going through the roof, I thought to try this. Well it’s good, very good. It’s not quite like a Darjeeling, though it’s similar. My wife and I actually prefer it. We drink it without milk, I can’t imagine milk would be very nice.
