Himalayan Moon Drops
Organic oolong tea, Nepal

Flavour: floral, fruity, roasty & sweet
Harvested on 6 June 2021, Himalayan Moon Drops is a sensory feast. Created using leaves from different tea varietals along with experimental tea crafting, this tea invites you to be creative. It expresses itself over a range of steeping temperatures; lower to accentuate floral and fruity notes, higher to draw out sweeter raw sugar and coffee-like aromas.

Jun Chiyabari, meaning ‘Moonlit tea garden’, is a family run, high mountain tea estate led by brothers Bachan and Lochan Gyawali. The tea plants are set in small plots scattered between forests, bamboo groves, boulders and streams, at an altitude of 1650m to 2100m in Dhankuta, east Nepal. The terroir, the brothers’ commitment to organic production and careful processing creates rare, high quality, light and aromatic full-leaf teas. Organic certification by IMO.

Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 75 - 95°. Three infusions.
