Organic Nepal Kanchanjangha Green Tea
This organic green tea hails from the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate in the foothills of Mt. Kanchanjangha (third tallest mountain in the world), in the far eastern region of Nepal. While Nepal is not one of the world’s traditional tea-producing countries, it is an up-and-coming region growing high quality tea with a strong commitment to social and environmental sustainability. The tightly-twisted leaves of this tea yield a dark golden infusion. This tea has a delicious full flavor, with a mineral earthiness and an aroma of damp leaves and forest flowers. Not surprising due to Nepal’s close proximity to the Darjeeling region of India, this tea offers hints of the nutty, muscatel qualities of a Darjeeling black tea, without the punchy astringency.
Sustainability is a cornerstone of Arbor Teas’ business philosophy. In addition to offering an exclusively organic selection of teas, they recently became the first tea company to offer their whole catalog in 100% backyard compostable packaging. They’ve also carbon-offset the entire supply chain of their products, from origin to the customer, making Arbor Teas the greenest option for Earth-conscious tea drinkers, and one of few tea companies recognized by Green America.
