Tea in Motion

Exceptionally beautiful black tea from Nepal that beautifully reflects the diversity in Nepalese tea!

Long, thin, dark, oxidized tea leaves. Carefully rolled with beautiful golden tips.

This unique flavor will appeal to lovers of mild Chinese black tea but also if you like traditional breakfast tea. It is full and complex, definitely not tart or bitter!

This tea was created due to a production error in 2013. The leaves were stirred, but just a little too long, giving the tea a slight caramel flavor. Since this was liked by many people, this process has kept up!

Jun Chiabari is a young, small, exclusive tea garden, from brothers Lochan and Bachan.

Jun Chiyabari is located in the eastern Himalayan mountains, around the mountains of Hile in the Dhankuta district. Initial planting began in 2001, with organic cultivation immediately taken into account. The tea garden is certified organic as of 2012.

The tea garden is located at an altitude of 1600- 2000 meters and of the 75 acres, 50 acres have been planted. In the next few years, the remaining 25 acres will be planted.

Jun Chiyabari is known for its orthodox tea to which a unique character is given in flavor and aroma by the soil in which the tea plant grows and the climate. The tea gardens lie between the Jungle of the Terai lowlands (400m high) and the world's highest mountain (8848m high) about 115 km away. You can imagine how many different micro climates are in between here!

The warm air from the south and the cold air from the north mean that the tea gardens are often in fog which are good conditions for the growth of the tea plant!

One of the characteristics of this tea garden is to be part of the local community. It employs more than 200 people (mostly women).

There is a program to help local schools with books , computers, and salary contributions for teachers. Girls from underprivileged families are also supported to attend school.

There is also an old people's home for the elderly who no longer have a "home. This is supported with food and clothing.

A project to restore a very dilapidated school in a remote corner of the tea area is currently underway. This is a government school that primarily caters to children from the lowest income families. By buying tea from this tea garden, you are helping a little to support these children.

This beautiful black tea carries a multitude of flavors. What I have heard so far from people who drank the tea: Brown sugar, citrus, cocoa, cream, dark chocolate, cereal, honey, malt, pepper, resin, roasted barley, sawdust, vegetables, wood, bell pepper, grapefruit, roasted, strawberry, sweet, white chocolate, almond, toast, butter, grapes, lemon, nutmeg, orange.

Best worth discovering for yourself, right?
