The origins of our Organic Jun Chiyabari White Tea


The name Jun Chiyabari means "Moonlit Tea Garden" in Nepali, is an organic tea farm in Dhankuta district of east Nepal.

This family-owned tea garden was started by in the year 2000 by Lochan and Bachan Gyawali brothers who were passionate about high-mountain teas, particularly making authentically Nepal speciality teas. The teas from Jun Chiabari had definitely placed the Nepal teas up there with its close rival Darjeeling and most importantly this is not a replica of the Darjeeling first flush, but a tea with a true reflection of the terroir and seasonality of high mountain tea gardens of Nepal.

Picking Season


Picked during the early spring between April-May, these hand-rolled white tea made with unopened buds and a tender leaf offers an aroma that resemble fresh spring blossoms and the light golden hue infusion is delicate and light with floral and tropical fruit noted. This tea is distinctly a high-mountain Himalayan wonder.

The location is the perfect climate for growing this tea because it is mistier, with lesser sun, and thanks to the high altitude it remains cooler which allows the buds to grow steadily.

Ingredients


Handcrafted Nepalese white tea

Tasting notes


This tea offers a spring blossom and fruity aroma and light golgen yellow infusion. A delightfully light cup with abundance of fruity notes of peach, apricot and offers a clean floral mouthfeel.

Region


The small Dhankuta district of Nepal is a hill town near the easternmost part of the country, where it shares its borders with India amid the rocky hills of the Himalayas. The region is just 150 miles away from Darjeeling, India, and shares some similarities in climate, although it is much lower in altitude, with valleys at 300m and peaks at 2500m above sea level.

The climate here is Humid Subtropical (CFB) and experiences mild to warm temperatures year-round. The early spring, late summer, autumn and winter experience lows of 8°C and highs of 22°C, whereas the temperatures across mid-spring to mid-summer range from 15°C to 31°C. This pattern is also present regarding cloud cover, precipitation and humidity, where the region experiences clear skies, low rainfall and very dry air (0% humidity) until the summer months, which are overcast and exceptionally wet and humid (100%).

Nestled above the town of Hile, the tea gardens are on the higher hills, with cooler, temperate forests contrasting with the lower sub-tropical areas which make up most the district. Mount Everest is only 70 miles to the North, whilst the lush jungles of the Terai lowlands are only 15 miles to the south. In between are multitudes of micro climates, and the tea growing areas benefit from the mixing of southern warm currents and cold, misty air from the mountains.

Crops are fundamental to the local economy throughout the district, with maize, rice, millet, citrus fruits and ginger being commonly cultivated. Indigenous flora includes rhododendrons and chir pine trees.
