This organic oolong is another stunning tea from the Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden in Nepal. The overall impression of this tea is one of honeyed baked fruits. It is rich, with a warming bakery spice aftertaste that lingers on the palate.
Jun Chiyabari is one of our favorite tea producers. They are true artisans who care about tea, the land, and their community and... their teas are always stellar. The farmers at Jun Chiyabari intentionally minimize their intrusion on the land - they do not weed or add any direct compost. They preserve the existing healthy eco system, which has been built up by worms, insects, plants, flowers, etc. The environment which these tea plants are growing is very healthy, very diverse, and very alive. You can taste how clean their teas are.
