This rare second flush tea from Sandakphu is hand-picked from select tea bushes with high chlorophyll content and valuable antioxidants. One leaf and a bud are plucked and are immediately placed in a withering truck in the fields with a supply of cold air. After one hour, the leaves go through a one-minute de-enzyme process, which halts the oxidation. The leaves are put into a roller, then a shaper, producing the beautiful half-moon pearls. During steeping, they unfurl to their lovely full leaves, creating a pale green, mild infusion. This is a fresh-tasting tea with sweet grassy and vegetal aromas and flavor.
One heaping teaspoon of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 3 minutes, then steep tea 1 - 2 minutes.
I like to drink tea every day, and always search for fresh tea, especially green tea, to my surprise this tea is great quality, fresh, with naturally sweet after you drink. Enjoy and good times :)
A refreshingly clear vegetal taste combined with a hint of sweetness and floral notes. Over-steeping by time and temperature may develop some astringency , so be careful while steeping. This tea is very delicate and can be enjoyed any time of the day. It is simply awesome.
