Himalayan Evergreen Summer
Organic green tea, Nepal

Flavour: vegetal, woody, floral ~ light-bodied
Himalayan Evergreen is Jun Chiyabari’s premium grade green tea. This is the 2021 summer harvest. Grown at an elevation of 1850m, the leaves are harvested by hand then quickly withered, pan-fired, rolled and oven dried. This is all done at speed to lock in the pure essence of the leaf. The result is a delicate, light-bodied tea with vegetal, woody and floral notes, a citrusy fragrance and a creamy mouthfeel.


Jun Chiyabari, meaning ‘Moonlit tea garden’, is a family run, high mountain tea estate led by brothers Bachan and Lochan Gyawali. The tea plants are set in small plots scattered between forests, bamboo groves, boulders and streams, at an altitude of 1650m to 2100m in Dhankuta, east Nepal. The terroir, the brothers’ commitment to organic production and careful processing creates rare, high quality, light and aromatic full-leaf teas. Organic certification by IMO.

Sizes: Himalayan Evergreen comes in four sizes: a 3 gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice.
