Emerald Green is an aromatic and refined green tea with delicate, twisted emerald-hued leaves. Only the very first spring harvest is used to make this tea and all of the wonders of Nepali spring air are captured within its leaves. This tea has a sweet and slightly floral liquor with subtle notes of zucchini, dried gardenia, and almonds that are accented by subtle hints of steamed spinach and dried lily. It is a wonderful tea to enjoy throughout the day.
The very first harvest is set aside for the production of our Emerald Green tea. Only the first bud and a leaf or first two leaves and a bud of the spring season are selected to make this tea. The reason for this selection is to harness all the natural freshness of spring tea that comes out only at the beginning of the season. The hand-plucked leaves are immediately taken to the factory and undergo a process of conditioning. The leaves are then jet steamed on a perforated tray and immediately cooled by blowing cold air. The cooled leaves are rolled then oven-dried. This tea has a distinct spring briskness and a flowery aroma with a flavor that leaves you with a lingering sweet aftertaste.
