A wonderfully complex and rewarding tea, Oasis was cultivated in the foothills of the Himalayas by a collection of smallholder farmers who follow organic practices. Oasis was crafted by Bimala, a third-generation tea master and perhaps the only female tea master in Nepal. Her attention to detail is evident with each sip.
As you begin to infuse the leaves, an aroma of orange blossoms and the sweet fragrance of the Sonoran Desert in spring draws you in. Oasis begins with a subtle earthiness that develops into honeysuckle notes and ends with a sweet nectar finish that dances on your tongue.
