Loose Nepalese Tea

Loose Nepalese Tea: teas from the roof of the world.

Nepal produces wonderful black teas with a Darjeeling character. Smooth, aromatic and subtle, loose Nepalese tea is often tippy and fresher tasting as the tea bushes are younger. Less known than Darjeelings Nepalese orthodox tea production is focused around Ilam and Panchthar. Located close to the Indian border and Darjeeling, Black Nepalese teas have a similar muscatel character to Darjeeling teas but are noted for being smoother and with more flavour. Little tea is exported however due to high local demand. Drink without milk.
The tea is typically produced by smallholders who sell their leaf to local factories for processing. Orthodox teas such as ours are generally exported but production is only a very small proportion of Nepal’s total tea production. This however is expanding, especially in eastern districts where new private investment is improving the quality of their teas with the support of the Himalayan Orthodox Tea Planters Association.
Picking: Spring from late February-mid-April. These are the freshest and most aromatic. Summer picking May-June. These teas are fuller flavoured. Monsoon June-September. These are teas are less distinctive. Autumn picking is October. These are rich, smooth with lingering flavours.
