One of the first teas harvested this year at the Jun Chiyabari Garden in the Dhankuta region of eastern Nepal. HSP - Himalayan Spring teas are among the best that comes out of this famous garden every year. Long unbroken, slightly rolled, and only slightly oxidized leaves consisting exclusively of hairy top tips, intense to intoxicating exotic aromas with tones of vanilla and flowering fruit trees. Bright, clear, and creamy soft infusion beautifully balanced taste full of exotic flowers, vanilla, and a pleasantly spicy texture not unlike Chardonnay wines. One of the most beautiful teas of this spring season.
Preparation: we put 7 g of tea into a small teapot (200 - 250 ml) and pour with boiled water that was cooled down to 80°C. Let it steep for 2 minutes.
About Jun Chiyabarai
The tea garden in the eastern Himalayan region of Nepal is located in the hills around Hile in the Dhankuta district. This is North 27o 01' East 087o 19'. The garden spreads within 1600 - 2000 meters above sea level. This area is about 200 km east of Kathmandu; 55 km west of Ilam in Nepal and 65 km west of Darjeeling, India.
Cultivars / plants
In the tea garden itself, different quality tea cultivars were brought from Nepal and Darjeeling and as far away as Taiwan and Japan and planted out.
From Nepal came plants (cuttings and seeds) from the original seeds plants given by the Qing Emperors (1850’s-1860’s) to Nepal’s rulers. Locally available plants from Nepal Tea Board like AV2 were also planted.
From Darjeeling, they got cultivars like T1, T78 and Phoobshering 312, and many others. Also, valuable cuttings and seeds from China seeds plants were obtained through friends and well-wishers.
From Japan, common varieties like Yabukita and some unique tea plants growing wild in the forests in Miyazaki ken were planted. From Taiwan plants like Si Ji Chun and Chin Sin Oolong from Dong Ding in Nantou were brought and planted.
Very few tea gardens in the region have the type of tea plants that are those in Jun Chiyabari. Perhaps this diversity combined with the soil and climate, not to speak of the skills of the tea master, is what gives the teas a special character.
The manufacturing season starts in March and continues until November. As is with the region, there are four harvest seasons: First, Second, Monsoon & Autumn Flush. The start and end of each Flush are totally climate-dependent.
