Elegant, floral and remarkably notes of dark chocolate.
The Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden
High in the Nepali Himalayas lies the tiny but extraordinarily beautiful Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden. At 1835 meters above sea level, the tea grows slowly but with intense flavours.
This very special terroir produces uniquely rich, chocolate flavours.
Production is extremely limited and we buy the entire harvest of this particular pick. These leaves are meticulously hand-rolled to maximise the sweetness and subtlety. The flavour of the hand-rolled leaves are exceptionally delicate and nuanced - allowing for great depth, without developing strong astringency.
The garden is run by Morris Orchard, a third generation Nepali tea planter, whose grandfather came from Britain to plant tea. This lovely man has a great respect for the land, the tea and the small team he works with - it is an honour to be part of that.
