Description: While Nepal is not one of the world's traditional tea-producing countries, it is an up-and-coming region growing high quality organic loose leaf tea with a strong commitment to social and environmental sustainability. The slightly twisted leaves of this organic Nepalese tea were grown on the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate, situated at an altitude between 3900 and 5400 feet above sea level, and yield a golden infusion. Kanchanjangha Tea Estate and Research Center is considered to be one of the pioneers of organic farming in Nepal and is also the first certified organic tea garden in Nepal. It is located in Ranitar in the remote hilly region of Panchthar district.

This organic green tea has a more delicate flavor profile than previous lots of Nepal Green and, most notably, some silver tips. The wet leaves offer a sweet aroma of stone fruit and agave nectar that translate into a smooth, dry, and bright cup with toasted notes. In fact, we would summarize this tea as a buttery, stone-fruit version of a Darjeeling First Flush. Not surprising due to the estate's close proximity to the Darjeeling region of India!
