- OUR MISSION
- KUMAON TEA
To really understand tea, visit the source. While tea has been grown, dried, and brewed for thousands of years, the specific locations and methods of each producer dictate the final taste of any leaf. India remains the world’s second-largest producer and exporter of tea, so this landscape offers boundless opportunities to understand the tea cultivation process. The Nepal tea industry is much newer, led by local communities experimenting with approaches that have never before been tried in the Himalayas before.
After a long hiatus due to the pandemic, we are excited to be organizing our guided trips to India and Nepal again! Fully immerse yourselves in the tea making process—from field to cup. Get off the beaten path—way off the beaten path—with us and experience mountain culture firsthand, as our tour guides provide education about India’s history and connection to tea, including local delicacies and city tours. Our guided tea trips are also a chance to meet the people who make the tea you love, offering personal connections across the globe.
