Hand-rolled Himalayan Tips:

Although tea from this part of the world has not been best known for smoothness, there can be exceptions provided that there is the proper knowledge and experience. Together with the work of Nature. Imperial Topaz is such a tea. Hand-rolled and masterfully processed for a soft and round profile yet rich with the distinctive mineral accents representative of the region, the bright orange infusion delivers what is best from the Himalayas coupled with the modesty and gentleness of a Chinese black. Imperial Topaz is not only a gem of Nepali tea, but also an example of what can be achieved when we tea people share and work together across boundaries.

Taste profile

A round and gentle nose that is earthy, malty and sweetened with notes of mulberry and Kyoho grape. Overtones of high altitude lichens after the rain. An definitive undertone of fresh cookies. Soft, medium body accented with minerals typical of the region. Mild maltiness balanced with a light fruity tone and a lighter astringency that gives good depth to the profile. Slightly sweet malty aftertaste.

Infusion tips

Unlike other Nepali or Darjeeling teas, it is possible for this tea to be infused to full strength without overly bitter or astringent. Use duration for added strength and a maximum ratio of 2g to 100 ml water. 95°C infusion temperature. Increase temperature for added pitch in the aroma and sharpness in taste. Use a fresh batch of leaves every time.
