Kanchanjangha Is the source of our Nepali teas.

At a staggering 1800 meters, young tea trees 40-50 years old grow in rocky soils, blanketed in mist. These stressful conditions make for teas with concentrated sugars, florals, and other compounds especially suitable for white tea production. Thus is explained NEPAL PRATHAMA, our inaugural Nepali tea with red plum and white flower fragrance.

Prathama—Sanskrit for "first"—is our farmer's designation for the first flush of growth after winter dormancy. Grown about one hour's drive up from the producing factory, leaves from the garden are shuttled down daily in spring, and transformed in the capable hands of one Nikesh Gurung.
