The Garden

 

Everest is a revitalised garden in Nepal, at approximately 6,000ft. The garden previously closed and has been recently re-opened to make fine craft teas.

This Batch

 

Just 20kg were made of this small batch which is picked from mixed China varietals, and includes some of the semi-wild trees growing on the garden. The leaves were hand picked, lightly withered, and hand rolled. The oxidation is judged by smell to bring out the most fruitiness in the tea.

Tasting Notes

 

In its youth, this tea had notes of stone fruit, honey, and a touch of nuts. As the tea has aged, it has become more grape-like in character, naturally sweet, with light nutty hints at the end. There is a touch of dryness but overall the tea is smooth.

Storing and Ageing

 

As at October 2020, buy now, drink now, and enjoy the last teas from Everest Garden.
