Green Pearls of Agni is an oak-smoked rolled green tea that evokes the energy, warmth, and wisdom of the Sanskrit fire god, Agni. Picked in the summer heat, this tea embodies the vibrant Nepalese summer. Notes of smoked wood, Swiss chard, and asparagus are carried by notes of roasted Brussels sprouts and collard greens. It is a unique tea that can be enjoyed by itself or paired with a meal.
This tea is created with fresh leaves that are partially withered with the smoke of oak wood. Leaves are then de-enzymed, cool, and rolled for 25 minutes. Tea leaves are then shaped into balls with the help of a shaping machine. They are dried, hand-sorted, and packed.
One heaping teaspoon per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 3 minutes, then steep tea 1 - 2 minutes.
I hated this tea and I have liked every other tea I purchased from Nepali tea traders I suppose if you'd like smoked tea you will like it. I realized I do not like smoked tea and giving it away to someone who will use it to make kombucha
Hi Joyce, Thank you for your feedback and your continued support to Nepali Tea Traders. As you explained, our smoked green is very popular and liked by the consumers who love the smoked flavor. Apart from that, this tea is often used to marinate steak or salmon by some of the restaurants to get the smoky flavor in their food. Sincerely,Nepali Tea Traders
I had to have at least two delicious cups of this tea before I could decided on what to say. Being a HUGH fan of smokiness, I gave this a whirl, and I wasn't disappointed at all. It's a highly unusual tasting tea, and yet the taste grows on you. But it's the aroma upon opening the bag and then my tea caddy that really does it for me....the savoriness which accosted my olfactory senses just about blew me away!! That and the resulting oomph of this unusual tea has led me to believe that this could very well be my 'go to' green tea!!! A must try for anyone who desires a 'different' green.
Hi Philip, We are thrilled to know that you have enjoyed every sip of this Smoked Green Tea. Thank you for your feedback. We Truly appreciate it!
I bought this to have something different. It came right on time and When I first opened the bag, it smelled like a campfire. I heated up some water and was surprised by the pleasant, Smokey flavor that reminded me of my old camping days in the woods. This is definitely worth a try if you enjoy smoked BBQ meats.
the smooth smoky notes combined with the freshness of delicious mountain green tea reminds me on a cosy cottage night by open fire - pure pleasure for palate and mind
