Green Pearls Oolong Tea - Exquisite | Fragrant | Complex | Wheat | Dried Orchid | Taro

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.

    Bestari Tea ever

    I was very impressed with the difference in the texture of the leaves compared to other tea that I have purchased. Full body after the tea has been steeped and not hard and brittle. The taste of both tegas was bold and invigorating.

    Not there...

    This tea is okay for the first 2 steepings. After the initial 2 cups ( 6 oz cup), the umami, the liquor quickly go down hill. My recommendations for steeping is 3 minutes at 190 degrees. In my opinion, this oolong is good for a stop gap measure, however, if an oolong with a lasting umami and liquor is what you want, a purchase of Tihar Smoked Oolong is the suggested "cup of tea".

    Refreshing and smooth

    I am new to the tea world, and this one is very nice. I made a second pot from the same leaves as the first pot but just let the second batch steep a little longer, and it was just as good!

    Real Tea Experience!

    This is a quite decent oolong for a reasonable price. It has the fragrant orchid-floral aroma when brewed that lasts through the first two brewing nicely. I was able to get a drinkable 3rd brewing from it. Love the flavor and experience. Now, this is a real tea experience. Thank you for a quality product.
