Teas out of Nepal have a tendency to stun us when we are taste testing teas. Maybe it's because Nepal is one of the most scenic places in the world or maybe it's because tea farmers in Nepal pull out all of the stops to make their teas stand out from their neighboring country, India. This tea did indeed stun us! It's a non-balled Oolong comprised of carefully picked full leaves. The dried leaves smell of chestnuts, honey, and sweet potatoes. The brewed tea has a gold color, a roasted chestnut with a hint of cinnamon aroma. It has a full bodied, thick taste of caramel and chestnuts. This tea has an extra something in it that can't be labeled in an objective way, but this tea just makes you feel really good, every time!
The Teenjure Cooperative was founded in 1995 and they are dedicated to all-natural cultivation methods for their teas! Their high altitude tea gardens typically result in very fragrant and flavorful teas that leave you saying, "WOW!" Tea growers in Nepal have historically been raw leaf suppliers for India. The raw leaf market is very unpredictable, doesn't provide a steady income, and is typically very low quality tea. This cooperative of Nepal is an attempt to change that. These neighboring farmers band together to share information with each other on natural cultivation practices, growing the highest quality tea possible, and general tea information. Since each family farm is small and they are all neighbors, it's basically one big family!
