Nepal is a growing force in the boutique tea industry, focusing on equitable and sustainable agricultural processes. This specific tea was grown by a Mr. Rai, using leaves from his own small acreage and from his neighbors, in the foothills of the Himalayas.
Nepal has a very similar terroir to Darjeeling, and this tea has just a hint of that distinctive crisp quality. This tea alternates between a fascinating light woodiness reminiscent of a fruit tree—not the fruit itself—and a salty minerality, like the scent of an ocean stone. There are gentle notes of florals hidden deep in this intriguing tea.
Please note: If you order multiple one ounce increments of tea, they will be consolidated into one larger bag. (Example: if you purchase four 1oz bags, they will be packaged into one 4oz bag.)
