Located in South Asia, and bordered by China and India, Nepal is home to some of the largest mountains in the world, including Mount Everest which is the highest point anywhere on Earth. Nepal is comprised of 75 districts, one of which is the district of Ilam. Ilam is located in the Mechi Zone in the easternmost part of Nepal. It borders the Darjeeling region of West Bengal, India, and enjoys the same soil and climatic conditions as Darjeeling. Ilam is also the name of the town that serves as the headquarters for the Ilam district. It is well known for its lush, beautiful tea gardens and for the exquisite leaves that are grown there. The Ilam Tea Estate was started in 1864 with tea seeds that were brought from China. The teas grown here are recognized around the world for their excellent quality.

Grown on the Ilam Tea Estate high in the Himalayan Mountains at altitudes ranging from 4,500-5,000 ft., these olive green and brown leaves contain numerous tips with an invigorating aroma. When brewed, this medium bodied tea has an ecru cup with a sweet orange taste.

Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.
