The smells of an African tea plantation are something you never forget. They are, to put it plainly, exceptionally natural. The ai...r is heavy and hot with fresh leaf sap hanging in the air. On buying trips the ultimate destination is the tasting room. Tasting tables on tea plantations tend to be long. It is not uncommon for buyers and tasters to be presented with 30 to 50 cups of tea at a time. As the kettle comes to a boil and each tea is infused, the aromas of the cups fill the room to tell the stories that will be read by the taste buds of the buyers. The cup tells the time of day at which the leaves were plucked, the estate section and bush variety the leaf was selected from, elevation, moisture content, the various temperatures at which they were dried, ambient humidity levels at time of production and grade. Is this cup from the section that borders the neighboring free-hold eucalyptus plantation? Or the section farther up towards the jungle? These are the questions that will be answered by the aromas and flavors emanating from the cups. The complete experience is one that never leaves you. A pot of Kosabei Plantation Kenya Green offers an experience as close to an actual plantation visit as you can get without boarding the Cessna out of Mombassa. Kenya Green, a recent development in Kenya tea is pulled from production halfway through the CTC (Cut Tear and Curl) process and immediately fired, halting fermentation. The resulting cup unlocks volumes about the history of African tea, the quality of Kenyan production and the lush majesty of the estates on which it is produced. A magnificent green tea with full green tea notes with all the seasonal taste that has made Kenya the Tuscany of Tea. Note: Kosabei Plantation is a sub-section of Tinderet estate and is certified by Fair Trade and the Ethical Tea Partnership. read more

Nepal, believed by some to be the birthplace of the Buddha, also happens to produce some of the world?s finest Orthodox teas. The ...tea industry in the country got its start sometime around 1873. In that year a man named Colonel Gajraj Singh Thapa, son in-law of Jung Bahadur, Nepal?s most famous historical ruler, paid a visit to neighboring Darjeeling. Wherever he went the locals offered him steaming cups of tea, which he found to be quite delicious. He was also apparently, according to historical account, quite taken with the sight of the orderly rows of tea that were carved into the mountain steppes up around the town of Darjeeling. Upon his return to Nepal the Colonel, estimating that climactic and topographical conditions in his country were likewise suitable for tea, set about establishing two estates and so the industry was born. The Colonel?s plan was a success. To say that the natural environment in Nepal is perfect for tea is an understatement. How perfect is it? Consider the following poem from "The Teachings of the Buddha" in reference to the country: "Soft zephyrs pass through the trees of that Pure Land and stir the fragrant curtains of the pavilions and pass away in sweet cadences of music." "Pure Land" is the key term here. The exceptionally clean air, rich mountain soil and pure beaming sunlight produce bushes that flush 4 times per year yielding full leaves densely packed with incredible flavor. Since the days of Colonel Thapa, the Nepalese industry has weathered various ups and downs but overall has grown considerably. Raw leaf in the country is grown by a mix small holders and larger plantations which has resulted in a good variety of sustainable employment opportunities for the Nepalese. So how do the teas taste? Most professional tea tasters liken the better Nepalese teas to the top Darjeelings. This Nepal Junchi is an excellent example. The cup opens wide with the pointed muscatel bite of a Darjeeling, offset by soft round notes of wheat and moss grounded by good mouth filling astringency. A heavenly delight from the "Rooftop of the World" read more
