Nepal, believed by some to be the birthplace of the Buddha, also happens to produce some of the world’s finest green teas. The Nepalese tea industry got its start around 1873 when Colonel Gajraj Singh Thapa, son- in-law of Nepal’s then ruler, paid a visit to neighboring Darjeeling. Wherever he went, locals offered him steaming cups of tea, which he found to be quite delicious.
Upon his return to Nepal, the Colonel, estimating the climatic and topographical conditions in his country to be similarly suitable for tea, set about establishing two estates, and an industry was born. In more recent years, again thanks in part to the success of its Darjeeling neighbor, Nepal began production of green teas that exhibit all the nuance and flavor of the Himalayan terroir. We’re sure the Colonel would approve.

Most professional tea tasters liken the better Nepalese teas to the top Darjeeling's. Nepal Junchi is an excellent example. The cup opens wide with the pointed muscatel bite of a Darjeeling, offset by soft, round notes of wheat and moss grounded by good mouth filling astringency. A heavenly delight from the “Rooftop of the World”.
Tasting notes: Superb tea from the mountain kingdom. Notes of grass, wheat, and moss lead to a surprisingly mild muscatel finish.
