Himalayan White Tea Significance:

Nepal Tea

This is a spring white tea grown at 6,000 feet in remote eastern Nepal. The Pathivara Estate, which produces this white, is in the same district as Mount Kumbhakarna and a mere 5 km from the Singhalia Wildlife Reserve, which is famous for its successful rehabilitation of the Red Panda. This high elevation region brings out the complex flavors in tea.

We are able to purchase from Pathivara Estate, and get this beautiful tea to the United States because of the Himalayan Tea Plantation Cooperative. The HIMCOOP is joint marketing consortium of Orthodox tea growers in Nepal. The staff at the HIMCOOP have the job of connecting tea merchants with the tea farmers in Nepal. This allows small growers like the Pathivara Estate to do business internationally, which allows them to get a fair price for their teas.It also opens up this hidden gem of the tea world to discovery by a broader audience of tea lovers.

Step 1:
Add boiling water to mug and allow the water to cool to 170°-185° or simply wait 2-5 minutes.
Step 2:
Steep 2 light Tbsp or 3-4 grams of tea per 8 oz of water.
Step 3:
Steep for 3-4 minutes. It may be well worth experimenting with water closer to 170° as white teas often provide more character with cooler water. Try multiple steepings.

    This tea is delightful and calming without breaking the bank. Brewing at 185F for 4 minutes yields a well balanced but slightly floral leaning taste. I tried this in one of the samplers and had to return for more.

    I drink loose tea everyday. I have different types of tea. I tend to drink more decaf and herbal teas. The white tea tasted mild. Smooth enough to drink early afternoon, with no side affects. I steep about 5 minutes. I add honey with the tea, enjoyed every drop. I will buy again.
