description

We returned to the Ganesh Himal gardens after enjoying their smooth, light and mellow first flush teas last year. Firewood, earth, and red flowers define the tea's flavor profile this season. On the palate it’s relatively dry, with a sort of musty, earthy quality that’s actually quite appealing and sets you up for the next sip.

aroma:
Mellow notes of wet wood, hay, dried fruit, and waxy red flowers.
appearance:
Gold
taste:
The liquor is full-bodied, fluid, well-rounded and balanced. Right up front, high fired notes are noticeable in the cup, followed by mellow but muddled notes of firewood, forest floor, earth, and hay.

Dried fruit, cucumber sandwich, puff pastry, dark chocolate
