Tea Farm

The farm is managed with an emphasis on social activism, offering educational and training programs for the employees and their children. Traditionally, cultivation has been done on a purely natural basis without the use of chemical pesticides or artificial fertilisers.



A nutty and sweet spring first flush with a creamy texture. From certified organic cultivation at the Guranse Estate, one of the highest-ranking tea gardens in the world. The tea captivates with its fresh character and tartness. Suitable for second infusions.


Fine and dark leaves, uniformly oxidised


Attractive orange-red


Black tea is the most oxidised form of tea. Unlike green tea, where the oxidation of the leaves is stopped with heat after they've been harvested and withered, black tea leaves are thoroughly rolled, which breaks open cell walls and exposes the enzymes responsible for oxidation. During this process, the leaves change from green to black and a full-bodied and broad aroma develops. When brewed, the tea is often orange or red, which is where the Chinese name for this tea (hong cha, meaning "red tea") comes from.

Cultivation & Processing

Cultivation & Processing

The Guranse Estate is one of the highest-ranking tea gardens in the world. The climatic conditions in the highlands of Hile in Dhankuta Province, eastern Nepal are ideal. The elevation ensures an advantageous bracing climate with significant temperature fluctuations between day and night. The relatively high rainfall is balanced out by good drainage on the hill slopes.

Single origin

This tea is sourced exclusively from the above-mentioned tea estate in Hile, Nepal. Purchased directly from the estate.


Brewing guide

2 heaped teaspoons per 200-300ml water (80-85°C). Steep for 2 minutes.

Recommended Teapot

A neutral porcelain teapot or a tall glass teapot with a built-in strainer, which allows the tea to float and steep freely, is recommended. A gaiwan is also very well suited for tea.
