Kanchenjunga Oolong is a spicy, full-bodied oolong tea with smooth tannins and a truly mesmerizing aroma reminiscent of fruity pipe tobacco. It is grown organically at an altitude of over 5,000 feet.

It comes from a small family farm in the Himalayan foothills of eastern Nepal not far from the base of Kanchenjunga (or Kangchenjunga) Mountain—the third highest peak in the world. The estate empowers its farmers economically by providing them with higher revenues, free housing, free education to their children and cows for additional income.

About Our Nepalese Tea

Grown in the Himalayan foothills, Nepalese tea is extraordinary. However, years of industry underdevelopment, coupled with a decade-long civil war, served to stunt Nepal's economy. Development of tea farming in the country suffered as a result. Since the signing of a peace accord in 2006, Nepal's tea growers have sought to share their product with more and more drinkers around the world.

Our Nepalese tea comes from small farms in Ilam and Panchthar, a region just 45 miles west of Darjeeling, at an altitude of between 5,000 and 6,000 feet. The region is semi-tropical and very sunny, but has abundant rainfall.
