You can meet some pretty stellar people by going to exhibitions. Just that is what has happened the past two years at the World Tea Expo for me out in Las Vegas! This tea was presented to me by the fine folks at Jun Chiyabari.

Something about the Nepalaese Himalayan teas resonates with me. Their flavors and aromas always remind me of Autumn when the air is cool and I have some of my fondest memories reconjured with friends.
The leaves for this fine tea look like Darjeeling teas. Loose and colorful, they're choppy looking large leaf particles. The aroma from these dry leaves is light and airy. It reminds me of jumping in piles of raked leaves in Autumn as a kid.
When brewed the leaves produce a light orange liquor with a lightly honeyes aroma sweeter than that of the dry leaves.
The brew tastes just as the tea smells. Like leaves in Autumn. The texture is easy but with some astringent bite and a long drying tail.
