Everest Gold Black Tea Description:

Top quality orthodox teas from Nepal are produced in extremely small quantities and often difficult to come by. Everest Gold is meant to be an outstanding representation of black tea from Nepal at the time of availability. However, this tea will change, potentially quite significantly, from year to year. Our current Everest Gold is an exquisite Black Tea from Kuwapani Tea Estate in remote eastern Nepal.

Kuwapani is located in Hile, at the foothills of the Makalu Mountain Range, in the Dhankuta district in the eastern hills of Nepal at an altitude of 6000 ft above sea level. The company has it’s own plantation and also sources leaf from small scale farmers in the district. It is under organic conversion at the moment. This is a summer harvest tea grown at 6,000 feet is at base of the famous mountain from which it gets its name. This high elevation region brings out the complex flavors in tea.

We are able to purchase from Kuwapani Estate, and get this beautiful tea to the United States because of the Himalayan Tea Plantation Cooperative. The HIMCOOP is joint marketing consortium of Orthodox tea growers in Nepal. The staff at the HIMCOOP have the job of connecting tea merchants with the tea farmers in Nepal. This allows small growers like the Kuwapani Estate to do business internationally, which allows them to get a fair price for their teas.It also opens up this hidden gem of the tea world to discovery by a broader audience of tea lovers.
