Himalayan Evergreen Spring
Organic green tea, Nepal

Flavour: floral, vegetal, buttery ~ light-bodied
Himalayan Evergreen is Jun Chiyabari’s premium-grade green tea. This is the 2023 Spring harvest, plucked by hand on 8 April from plants growing at an elevation of 1850m. The leaves are withered, pan-fired, rolled and oven-dried, resulting in a delicate and sweet green tea.

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 create 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.
