The lightly rolled dry leaves, with their generous scattering of silver-white buds, unfurl during infusion to reveal heavily oxidized, greenish-brown whole leaves. The tantalizing aroma of the liquor suggests banana cake warm from the oven with a hint of ripe mango. The taste is of bananas and dates, with an aftertaste of charred wood.
In the 1980s, the lands on which Golden Nectar is grown were a cultivated tea garden. But during a period of financial hardship, the garden was abandoned, and soon was overgrown and became wild. Allowed to grow freely for thirty years, this tea developed its own distinct flavor, untouched by human hands. In 2010, our tea master rediscovered this wonderful land and found a delicately flavored tea that tastes of stone fruit and toast.
