Half-litre pot at home, made from fine rolled leaves of organic Oolong. Pours clear dark straw (against white china) without any sediment.

Jan. 17th, 2020

Half-litre pot at home. Pours clear dark amber with no sediment. Clear aroma of pure black tea, with very mild hints of orange. Delicate flavour of fine tea leaves, with barely discernible touches of bark. Bitter, slightly astringent palate with a gentle, slightly acidic aftertaste. Clean and of very fine quality, tast...

Has an almost musty earthiness to it. Would not drink it cold. Very dark aroma and flavor with a lingering undesirable aftertaste.

Oct. 31st, 2018

Without a doubt my favorite tea I've ever tried from Nepal. A singular tea with an intoxicating floral fragrance and an ethereal quality overall. Another sample from Simpson & Vail, thank you, and apologies for taking so long to post this one!

This tea was fascinating: visually, the leaf looks more like a Chinese te...

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Nepal

84 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
May. 3rd, 2018

A good tea that resembled Darjeeling first flush teas and probably would have convinced me it was a "black" tea if it had not been labeled as an oolong. It's more like a Himalayan black tea that had something different or unusual about it. Not what I expected; it was nothing like Chinese oolongs, nor like Darjeeling oo...

Nepal Tippy Orange Pekoe from Simon Lévelt

62 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 21st, 2017

The dry leaves look green, orange and black, and the used leaves a really soft greenish orange. The liquid is much lighter than most other black teas I have.
This tea is extremely smooth and soft and tastes kind of earthy. It doesn't easily get bitter.

Apr. 22nd, 2016

I took a long time to review this tea because it didn't impress me at first, but I thought it would be better in hot weather, and having saved a bit for the warmer weather, it's exactly like I thought: I like this more on a hot day.

This tasted (but not looked) the most like a Chinese green tea of any green tea that...

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 25th, 2016

A singular tea! This was the first Nepal-grown Oolong that I've tried. I find oolongs from the Himalayan region (I've tried seven from Darjeeling) to be incredibly variable. This was probably my second-favorite and was among my favorite of all teas labeled as oolongs, although it bears little resemblance to oolongs o...

A beautiful blend. I love rose green tea and I thought this one was exceptional. It's one of the best blended or flavored green teas I've had.

The dry leaf of this smells wonderful and balanced...I can actually smell the tea, usually rose overpowers base teas, especially green teas. The tea smells light and vegeta...

Style: Black Tea – Region: Nepal

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 28th, 2015

The aroma rich, a touch on the sweet side, but more rich than sweet. The notes are primarily roasted peanuts, malt, and a touch of sweet potatoes and stewed fruit. At the end there is the most delicate note of rose and pepper, I run into pepper quite often, but the notes of rose were a pleasant surprise.

Ok, first s...

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 7th, 2015

The aroma is a bit sweet, a blend of toasted sesame and freshly cut grass, a bit of distant floral and a touch of mineral at the finish. The tight little balls did not give up their scent easily, it required much sniffing, but the aroma that did come off of them was light and clean.

The taste of the first steep is ...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 20th, 2014

The dry tea is a mixture of green leaves and fuzzy silver buds. It smells a little bit sweet. It brews up to a light golden liquor, with a scent that’s very fresh and reminds me of a spring breeze. The flavour is sweet and vegetal, like fresh spring peas or new green grass. The mouthfeel is very smooth with just a hi...

Dec. 20th, 2014

Another What-Cha tea! This black tea has twisty leaves that range from brown to gold. Just as the hot water was hitting them I got this aroma of spicy baked… something. Not spicy enough to be gingerbread, but like, maybe a sugar cookie with cinnamon on top? Once brewed, I smelled it again and was like “Oh, so when ...

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 20th, 2014

Dried tea consists of lovely, fuzzy silver buds, with a faintly floral/earthy scent. Brewed, the leaves smell much more vegetal, and I think there’s a specific vegetable there that I just can’t identify. It brews up pale yellow, and smells like fresh hay. Taste is a bit sweet, a bit mineral, with more hay and veget...

Dec. 20th, 2014

This is a nice medium bodied black tea. It brewed up surprisingly dark after only 2min. The aroma is actually a bit floral, but the flavour is more fruity. A bit of drying sensation in the mouth by the end of the cup. Reminds me a bit of a 2nd flush darjeeling?

Dec. 16th, 2014

A mellow, mild, yet fascinatingly novel tea.

This tea tastes a lot more like an oolong than a black tea. The leaf is huge, unusual for teas grown in the Himalayan region. I found it very complex and very enjoyable, but I could see it disappointing if I were expecting a black tea. Most lighter black teas from Nepa...

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 29th, 2014

The aroma of the leaf balls is very green and quite sweet, there are notes of cut grass, freshly broken green stems, a tiny bit of hay, and a nice sharp finishing note of citrus. It has a very refreshing aroma that I hope carries over to the brewed tea.

The first steep can be summed up best as odd yet refreshing! As...

Oct. 25th, 2014

Muscatel and plum scent, and the plum comes out with absolute loveliness in the liquor—sweet, and just slightly astringent. Additional sips bring out a blossoming plum and grape richness, that quickly gives way to a cooling tart astringency. Every sip is filled with juicy-ripe fruit. A beautiful tea, and easily an eq...

Oct. 1st, 2014

The aroma of the needles is as beautiful as the leaves, very light and delicate with notes of chestnuts, fresh hay, mown grass, and an ocean breeze. I have such a weakness for teas that have a marine note to their taste or aroma, it instantly transports me to the beach and that makes me immensely happy. I think I am ju...

Sep. 24th, 2014

The aroma of these fluffy and silvery leaves is summed up as light, with notes of orange blossoms, cane sugar, a touch of undefined flowers, and a tiny hint of herbaceous green. It is like a blend of white tea, oolong, and delicate green tea, when I say that it is light, the aroma itself is very defined and has a prese...

Sep. 10th, 2014

The aroma of the little pearls is not very strong, I catch little whiffs of aromas, much like the tightly curled pearls are hiding their secrets from me. There are gentle notes of nuttiness and fruitiness, a mix of stone fruit and citrus, with just a tiny hint of sesame seeds.

The first steep is incredibly gentle a...

Jul. 22nd, 2014

The aroma is leafy, like fresh vegetation, this fades to vanilla sweetness and a nutty tone. At the end of the sniff the aroma is sweet and a touch floral. I do not smell much in the way of tamarind, but it has been a long time since I sniffed any.

Tasting this tea gave me a bit of a surprise, because it reminds me ...

Nepal Tea Flowers from Upton Tea Imports

Sep. 3rd, 2013

The aroma of the dried flowers is very evocative of straw flowers or chrysanthemum, slightly woody. The aroma of the liquid still has the woodsy quality but also brings in slight mineral and mossy.

The flavor of the tea flowers is incredibly sweet, not at all floral and reminds me of a mixture of Scuppernongs and A...
