The Nepali tea that we feature is farmed, produced and distributed in the heart of Nepal's tea production capital, Ilam, a mile-high city in southeast Nepal, close to the border of India.  Pristine weather, a high altitude and pollution-free environment make Nepal an ideal place to grow and produce tea.

Nepali Oolong Organic Tea is grown in these ideal conditions and the purity is apparent in the clean taste of the tea liquor.

Brewing Recommendations

Serving Size: 3-5g per 100ml of purified water.

Ideal Brewing Vessel: Porcelain tea pot or gaiwan; or high-fired, high profile thin clay teapot.

Steeping: Boil water to 212F/100C and then wait for the water to stop bubbling before pouring the water down the inside of the brewing vessel, not directly on the leaves. Brew for 30 seconds, then replace the lid and pour the liquor into a gong dao bei (fairness pitcher) before apportioning into tea cups.  Add 15 seconds for each subsequent brew. Remove the lid of the brewing vessel to allow the leaves to cool between steepings. Flash brewing in this manner ensures this tea can be brewed up to 5+ times and brewed again the following morning if left overnight.
