Tea Farm

Chongtong Estate

The Chongtong Estate is located amidst the picturesque slopes on the border with Nepal with a view of the Kanchenjunga Mountain Massif. The tea fields are located at the merger of two mountain rivers. The Chongtong Estate has been certified organic since 2007.



A green tea from the second flush at the Chongtong Estate, carefully blended with turmeric. A pleasantly spicy combination with a soft, mineral taste and delicate bitterness. A warming, comforting tea that also tastes extra refreshing with a splash of fresh lemon juice.

Chai & Ayurvedic Teas

Black tea is the most oxidised form of tea. In contrast to green tea, the oxidation of the leaves after harvest and withering is not stopped with heat, but rather further facilitated by intensive rolling of the leaves, which breaks open cell walls and exposes the enzymes responsible for oxidation. Over the course of this process the leaves change from green to black and a full-bodied and broad aroma develops. The cup is often orange or red, which is where the Chinese name for this tea (hong cha, meaning "red tea") comes from.

Cultivation & Processing

The slopes of the estate are ideal for cultivating tea as the plants can benefit from both the bracing climate at this high elevation as well as the rich sunlight.

The fresh tea leaves of the summer harvest (second flush) have a high moisture degree of 75% that evaporates during the strictly monitored withering process when air is blown between the leaves. The tea is machine-rolled to open up the leaves, expose the leaf juices, and thus facilitate fermentation. The tea is fermented for a longer period of time than first flush and takes place under constant supervision to ensure the full development of the flavour bouquet, which has a muscatel character. In the last stage the tea is fully dried in an oven for 25 minutes and hand-packed into tea crates.

Single Origin
