Infuse not brew

The nicest, fruitiest, most aromatic Darjeeling analogue I have ever tested. This, together with Indian Cloud Tea and Sikkim Second Flush Muscatel, are the holy trinity of teas for me and I always make sure I have a couple of these knocking around in my cupboard. They blow all the competition out of the water, even local loose leaf independent shops, Taylors of Harrogate and Newby. Cannot get through the day without them.

A break from being busy Nepalese Himalayan Black Tea

I was excited to see this tea being offered by the Rare Tea Company. Having lived in Nepal and Bhutan, I decided to treat myself to this tea. I tend, like many others just now, to be at my desk without the necessary breaks we all need. So I treat the making of this tea as my excuse to take time out. It is my little treat. I love the flavour of the tea, it is quite robust, but then mellows. I admit, it is kept for my use only...allowing me a few moments to sit, reflect and savour a bit of time away from the screen.

Tasting Notes

A particularly deep black tea with notes of dark chocolate and bright citrus. Best enjoyed without milk.

Quantity

Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 85°C (185°F) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least twice.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

27p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

The Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden

High in the Nepali Himalayas lies the tiny but extraordinarily beautiful Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden. At 1835 meters above sea level, the tea grows slowly but with intense flavours. This very special terroir produces uniquely rich, chocolate flavours.

The garden is run by Morris Orchard, a third generation Nepali tea planter whose grandfather came from Britain to plant tea. This lovely man has a great respect for the land, the tea, and the small team he works with - it is an honour to be part of that.
