Himalayan Snow Buds – Organic

(1 customer review)


Description:

First note is sweet with a tease of floral and toasted grains, yielding a delicate dried vegetal note with a straw gold liquor. This handmade organic tea is plucked in November, one bud and a leaf, lightly hand rolled then dried. The gardens are situated at 5500-7000 feet elevation in Nepal which is quite unusual elevation for a white tea. What makes this distinctive is that the leaves have been hand-rolled, a step not seen in the traditional white teas from China. Cultivar is Nigale #2.

    In my journey of developing a more complex palette I’ve gotten to where I can enjoy white teas. I hadn’t had this one for a long time, white isn’t my top class, but geez I forgot just how much I loved this one! It’s soft and strong at the same time.
