In the late 1800s, A Nepalese Colonel, incredibly taken by the sight of the tea estates in Darjeeling, set about estabilishing two tea estates, starting the tea industry in Nepal. To this day, we're still grateful he did.
Nepalese teas are similar to a well-rounded Darjeeling and the Jun Chiyabari tea garden located in the eastern Himalayas produces teas that are an excellent example of that. This cup opens with a heavy muscatel note, which is offset by hints of wheat and moss with just a touch of astringency.
