Nepal Tea LLC is also one of the very few companies which imports single origin tea directly from its Tea Estate in Nepal (KTE-RC), guaranteeing the quality and freshness of the tea while cutting the unwarranted middle-men reaping benefits from the farmers.
The Tea Estate
Kanchanjangha Tea Estate & Research Centre (KTE) is located at Ranitar in the remote hilly region of Panchthar district in eastern Nepal bordering the tea area of Darjeeling at an altitude of 1300-1800m. The tea garden lies at the foot hills of Mt. Kanchenjunga which covers the largest vegetation area with a combination of unique blends of natural factors for the growth of exclusive aromatic tea. The enterprise was launched in 1984 by Mr. Deepak Baskota along with the local farmers on a cooperative model. Over a 100 farmers joined hands, pooled in their marginal land holdings and became owners of the first orthodox tea plantation covering nearly 94 hectares of land. The land which was barely enough to sustain them is now utilized to produce High Quality Organic Orthodox Tea of the Himalayas.
