Exceptional tea of great rarity which is produced with a small plot of the Jun Chiyabari plantation in Ramché, which hosts the first tea trees planted in the plantation in the year 2000. These tea trees, which are few in number, are of Chinese origin from of seeds, their origin is not documented. They produce very small leaves that have a completely unique taste, with really clear coconut notes, which vary in intensity and secondary notes depending on the date of harvest. This is a autumn flush, the coconut is here mixed with notes of leather, musk and powerful, all in a quite remarkable balance. One of the best teas we offer.

The plantation:

The Jun Chiyabari Garden, literally the tea garden illuminated by the full moon, was created in 2000 with the aim of establishing a certified organic high-altitude tea plantation on the Himalayan slopes of eastern Nepal. The garden is located around the small town of Hilé in the district of Dhankuta at an altitude varying from 1450 to 2200 meters. Darjeeling Gardens are about 100 km as the crow flies from the plantation.

The garden is spread over a hundred hectares for a production of only 15 to 20 tons per year, which is very little in ratio. This is explained by tea trees planted in nature, without disturbing it, and a reasoning of non-intensive cultivation, with a permanent search for optimal quality.

Bachan Gyawali, owner of the plantation and our direct contact, told us how over the years different cultivars from the best regions of East Asia have been planted at Jun Chiyabari. Indeed, tea plants from China, Taiwan, and even Japan have been acclimatized to the extraordinary terroir of Nepal to produce today some of the best organic teas in the world.
