Flavours of rose petal combine with bread-like malt notes and a plum sweetness to create a smooth and refined brew.
The Jun Chiyabari garden lies between Kathmandu and Darjeeling in the Eastern Himalayan region of Dhankuta, Nepal. The family run operation is an industry leader in organic farming and ethics. Their progressive techniques and commitment to quality have enabled them to create some of the most unique and prized tea out of Nepal. The micro lots that we select are comprised of mixed varietals and grown at an altitude of approximately 1700m above sea level.
Tasting notes: Rose Petal, Bread, Plum sweetness
Place 1.8g of tea in a cup that can hold a bit more than 100ml of water.
Bring water to 95°c and pour 100ml into your cup.
Let it steep for 3 minutes.
Feel free to play around with your tea. See how the used leaves smell after you brewed your tea and compare it to how the tea tastes. Change the brewing temperature as well and taste how that affects the flavour of the tea.
A lower brew temperature will showcase the tea’s fruit character while higher temperatures yield more of the floral aromas.
If you are serious about tea or would like to be, we recommend investing in a little scale that is able to measure 0.1g and a fancy water boiler with temperature control.
Shelf life for your tea: Tea doesn’t really expire, it ages and as it does it hits a peak at a certain point. Some varieties at Companion Tea are intentionally aged. They always try to sell everything while tasting best.
