Kanchanjangha Tea Estate, established in 1984, was based on a cooperative model with a mission to rid its community of poverty. Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Kanchanjungha in Nepal, the third highest mountain in the world, over 100 farmers with pooled land holdings, grow tea at an altitude of 4,000-6,000 feet above sea level. The result is Kanchanjangha Estate which is blessed with pristine Himalayan climatic conditions that produce highly unique & aromatic teas.
This mellow green gem will evoke memories of grassy meadows with hints of wild flowers.
