Yet another tea rescued from the floors of the World Tea Expo! This Himalayan Evergreen green tea from the Jun Chiyabari tea garden in Nepal and sold by SAFA Himalaya is a well rounded and unique member of the green tea family.
Almost all oolong teas come from China or Taiwan. So it's always a bit neat when you find one from somewhere else. This Himalayan Night from Jun Chiyabari is a Nepalese oolong, and I have to say, I like it.
After having some Himalayan Tips from Harney & Sons which I reviewed last year, I've become rather fond of this type of tea. As a culture enthusiast I find tea from Nepal compelling for more than their quality. The culture and families growing these teas are fantastic people! SAFA Himalaya celebrates this with their Himalayan Tips.
The World Tea Expo held every year in Las Vegas is the world's only industry convention dedicated solely to the premium tea industry. It's not open to the public and I've been very lucky to attend the past two years!
Here's the final installment of this three part recap to the activities and friends from this year's expo!
Last week, I covered my first day at the 2009 World Tea Expo held in Las Vegas. This week you get to hear about the rest of my trip. I won't name names... but I met some really fantastic people at this year's expo...
