Green Pearls is a stunning example of an autumnal tea from the Jasbirey village in Sandakphu, Nepal. It is picked right before the plants go dormant for the winter, capturing the unique characteristics of its later picking. Its vibrant, amber liquor has notes of wheat, dried orchid, and taro that are accented by aromatic notes of dried leaves and stewed fruit. It is the perfect tea for a peaceful afternoon.
This distinctive green oolong is plucked just before Nepal’s tea plants go dormant in mid-November. After plucking, the leaves are withered and rolled in mechanical rollers. The leaves are then placed in a shaping machine and further dried, producing distinctive pearls. This exquisite, complex oolong produces aromas of wild orchids. The flavor is soothingly fruity, characteristic of the finest of the autumnal teas from the Jasbirey foothills of Sandakphu.
One heaping teaspoon of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 2 minutes, then steep tea 2 - 3 minutes.
