It seems oolong teas are all the rage right now. They’re being grown in Hawaii and New Zealand as well as Nepal and most of these oolong teas are wonderful! This rule stands true for this Himalayan Jade oolong tea from SAFA Himalaya.
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.
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.
It’s been a week since the end of the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas and I’m still a little heady from the experience. Here’s a recap of my time at the Expo and my takeaway from the event.
