Our tea grown in the Himalayas of Nepal is of high quality, because of its unique geographical environment, it can be satisfied regardless of climate, rainfall, temperature, humidity, soil, light, and ground temperature. The mountains are filled with clouds and mists throughout the year, and the light is short and diffused light is more, which increases the amino acid content in tea leaves and improves the freshness of tea leaves. Due to the large temperature difference between day and night, the tea production period is slow, and pests and diseases cannot survive. We bring in Black Gold Tea, Gold Tea, Premium Green Tea, White Tea and Oolong Tea from Nepalese Alpine Tea Plantations. Each of them has a unique and wonderful aroma and taste, also packed with nutrients.
What is tea?
Whether it's black gold tea, gold tea, green tea, white tea or oolong tea, it all comes from the same plant - Camellia sinensis. According to the fermentation degree, process and color of tea soup, it is divided into six categories: green tea, white tea, yellow tea, green tea, black tea and dark tea.
Black Gold Tea
Black Gold Tea belongs to black tea which is the most popular type of tea in the world. Of all the categories of tea, black gold tea is the most heavily oxidized, giving it a medium body, mellow flavor. A high-quality black gold tea is smooth and sweet and not too astringent.
Gold Tea is picked during the monsoon season in Nepal. Its rich, deep amber liquor has notes of malt, clover honey, and burnt sugar, highlighted by aromatic notes of apricot and clove.
Sun-drying the tea instead of oven-baking it allows it to continue oxidizing, ageing and changing flavor over time.
Among all the categories of tea, white tea is the least processed and most natural type of tea. It is covered with a protective layer of white fur, hence the name “white” tea.
This light-oxidized white tea will produce a jade yellow brew with a floral, subtle and delicate taste.
Premium Green Tea
Green tea is made from unoxidized leaves and is one of the least processed types of tea. For this reason, it contains the most antioxidants and beneficial polyphenols.
Green tea is grown in higher altitudes, ours is handpicked tea which is less bitter and savory umami, refreshing taste.
