Today I drank two black teas.
Risheehat Exotic Spring Clonal Darjeeling First Flush 2011
Dry leaves smell wonderful: fresh, juicy, spicy (almost like bergamot in Earl Grey). Very bright liquer. Top notes of citrus, apples, whole light, refreshing, energizing. Slightly lack the depth and intensity.
Here few photos.
Second tea was a Nepal Himalaya Shangri La SF 2010
Full and balanced tea with the second flush, coming from the unusual tea gardens located very high - at almost 3,000 meters in the Himalayas.
Production of Nepal tea is strongly conditioned by favorable climatic conditions, as well as the guidelines of the economy of Nepal, which do not allow the enrichment of the artificial methods of production. The result is a tea organic, pesticide-free. The plantation is supported by HOTPA (Himalayan Orthodox Tea Producers Association)
The taste of tea is reminiscent of a tasty and full of familiar Darjeelling teas - but that Nepal is very balanced, which makes it encountered without excessive focus on teas from the first flush.
And few photos.
Thanks for reading;)
