The exceptionally clean air, rich mountain soil, and pure, beaming sunlight produced bushes that flushed four times per year, yielding full leaves densely packed with incredible flavor. Raw leaf in the country is grown by a mix of smallholders and larger plantations, which has resulted in a good variety of sustainable employment opportunities for the Nepalese. Interestingly, nearly 60% of tea workers employed in Nepal are female. Most professional tea tasters liken the better Nepalese teas to the top Darjeeling. The cup opens wide with the pointed muscatel bite of Darjeeling, offset by a soft round notes of wheat and moss, grounded by a good, mouth-filling astringency. The aroma and flavor of the cup expand with each sip. A heavenly delight from the "Rooftop of the World."
