Khima Full Moon Delight ~ Upton

Probably one of the most incredible smelling teas I’ve ever encountered. Khima Moon Delight is all but bursting with rich fresh pineapple and Tip. This Nepalese very-bold leaf single estate first flush also impresses in liquor tone (and the way that the color lives up to its name xD). I’m particularly taken with how the spent leaves unfurled into a gorgeous bud and first leaf pluck.

Although not described as such in the catalog, I think I would call Khima Full Moon a GFOP, or maybe simply “show stopping”? In taste too, Khima Full Moon contains a brief pineapple note and a sweet caramely aftertaste. Although Khima Full Moon doesn’t have much in the way of Fine Tippy Golden texture, it does have a crisp vegetal grit that could only belong to a Nepalese Black. Excuse me while I swoon for a moment.

  1. Aroma – 100%?!

  3. Texture – 93

  1. I’m sipping a cup right now, and it is a VERY nice tea. I’m normally a bit of an Indian tea snob, but this one, along with some of the better Chinese teas, have forced me to acknowledge that there are distinctive, beautiful teas to be found elsewhere.

    1. Thanks! I really appreciate your comments. Apologies it took so long to get back to you. I really love a great many Indian teas and have tried my best to learn all the distinctive qualities of Darjeeeling, Niligiri, Assam, Doars, etc. but my IBS unfortunately keeps me from drinking a lot of Black tea so i do a lot of sip and spit. ;P
