""...and they were remembered in many songs long after they had perished for ever, for few ever flowered east of the Land of Gift."''"
Unfinished Tales

Taniquelassë was a fragrant evergreen tree brought to Númenor from Tol Eressëa by the Elves. After the downfall of Númenor they were not found within the circles of the world.[1]

Taniquelassë, among the other trees brought to Númenor, grew mostly up the sheltered seaward slopes of Nísimaldar in the Bay of Eldanna but they also spread far east into the land.[1]

[edit] Etymology

The word taniquelassë means "high-snow-leaf" in Quenya (from ta- (cf. tára)= "high", nique= "snow" and lassë= "leaf").[source?]
