Aroma Nepal - Mid Season S.F.T.G.F.O.P.1
Nepali tea is grown in the foothills of the Himalayas close to Darjeeling, not as popularised as Darjeeling but just as excusive and fresh. The altitude, soil, rainfall and temperature help create the flavour of this delicate tea. It is well balanced and mildly spicy with a fresh overtone. This grade is a large leaf so needs longer to infuse and is light in colour when brewed.
Situated between China and India, Nepalese teas are grown at altitudes of between 2,000 and 3,000 metres. Due to the small growing area any teas from Nepal are relatively rare. Due to Nepal avoiding colonisation from the British Empire it didn’t get the same industrialisation of production like India. Therefore meaning it isn’t as well-known as Darjeeling.
