beTeas is proud to offer this high grade Himalayan Evergreen organic green tea from the renowned Jun Chiyabari Estate in eastern Nepal. This unique green tea boasts partially hand rolled & tightly twisted leaves that infuse a lively, vegetal cup with accents of fresh fruit and finish of chestnuts. The bright flavour and lingering earthy sweet taste is unlike other green teas, making this a superb choice for black tea lovers who have not yet found a green tea they can commit to.
Jun Chiyabari’s tea gardens are located at 6,000 to 6,500 feet in the ‘hills’ around Hile, a typical Himalaya hill-town not far from Sagarmatha (Mt Everest) to the north and Sikkim and Darjeeling to the east. The physical beauty of this estate is matched by the caring spirit of it’s operation, which is founded in meaningfully providing for the community as well as the estate workers. Jun Chiyabari’s core philosophy includes investment education, equalized pay for women and men, and promoting women to supervisory positions (women make up 80% of Jun Chiyabari’s workforce). One can feel good about consuming a tea where the same amount of love and care went into it’s people, as into the leaf that steeps in your cup!
