Kumaon White, Organic
Hand-harvested in spring from newly sprouted buds, this tea has a slightly greener flavor than traditional whites and ends on a buttery, honeydew melon note.
We are proud to offer this tea as it is part of the Kumaon tea project intended to revive tea production in the area and to create rural livelihood opportunities. The project currently pays 200 Kumaon families 5 to 10 times the average rates received by Indian farmers to produce 120,000 pounds of tea annually.
