Celebrate this easter with Nepali Teas


Easter, a time of renewal and celebration, invites us to embrace warmth, joy, and the blooming beauty of spring. This year, enrich your Easter traditions with the exquisite flavors of Nepalese Tea, a blend that promises to elevate your holiday experience with its unique taste and aromatic bliss.

Mindful Tea Drinking Practices

Mindful tea drinking is an art that transforms a simple daily ritual into a holistic sensory experience. It is a practice deeply ingrained in the fabric of Nepal’s culture, where tea isn’t just a beverage but a bridge to mindfulness and meditation. The concept extends beyond mere consumption to a form of Zen-like meditation that encourages complete immersion in the present moment.

When we engage in the act of mindful tea drinking, we invoke all our senses to participate. We begin by appreciating the color of the tea—observing the hue that Nepali tea leaves impart to the water, a color that can range from the palest gold to a deep amber, akin to the diverse palettes of Nepal's own landscapes. As we pour the water over the leaves, we watch the color seep and swirl, a visual dance that beckons us into the moment.

The aroma is next to engage us, as the steam carries with it the delicate scent of Nepal's high-grown tea. Each variety has its own distinct fragrance, shaped by the unique terroir of the region. The rich earthiness of orthodox teas, the delicate floral notes of the spring harvest, or the brisk freshness of the green varieties—all contribute to the multisensory experience of Nepali tea. Inhaling deeply, we allow the aroma to fill our senses, transporting us to the tranquil tea gardens nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas.

These fusion recipes not only tantalize the taste buds but also celebrate the cultural mosaic that Nepal represents.

This Easter we recommend you try three of our teas.

This Tea is selectively picked downy buds, and supple young leaves right below it, processed into Black tea.

In the early spring, when the first lot of new buds appear, farmers rush to the field to pluck them quickly (usually within a week) before they unfurl into leaves. These fine, potent buds appear after a period of dormancy the tea plant goes through in the winter. This causes them to be full of flavors and packed with antioxidants, when processed into Black tea .
