April 2018 Newsletter - Greetings From India
Through government sponsored initiative, local farmers attend a workshop with Desmond Birkbeck to learn about tea cultivation. 

Greetings from India!  We are back in Kumaon working with our friends as they bring one of India's oldest tea growing regions back to life.  Follow us @youngmtntea to see the adventure unfold.

While this area was one of the first places the British cultivated tea, Kumaon (bordering Nepal's western border) never boomed like Darjeeling and Assam. Today, vacant terraces mean that there are opportunities for young Kumaon farmers to enter the tea business and create their own reputation for the region - one based on high quality, unique, single origin teas.  Our Kumaon Black and Kumaon Whiteare two of the first teas from this area to be available in the west.  

Learn more about Kumaon's exciting future in an article we wrote for Fresh Cup Magazine: The Catalyst Behind Kumaon's Comeback.
