Ganesh Himal Classic Spring Black Tea

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.
