Guranse Estate green organic tea comes from Guranse Estate in Dhankuta, Eastern Nepal. This Himalayan tea is produced on high altitudes and has a very specific and rich flavor.

 Nepalese teas are grown on high altitudes, sometimes even higher than 6600 feet. Not only are these areas more difficult to access, but they provide ideal terroir for growing organic, pure and fresh tea. Guranse Estate Green is an orthodox tea, produced using traditional methods.

Guranse Estate Green Tea FAQS

Guranse is a Nepali word for rhododendron, a national flower of Nepal. It’s also the name of the tea estate growing this exquisite green tea. Just like Guranse Estate tea, Nepalese rhododendrons also grow on high altitudes. Guranse Estate is a certified organic and award-winning estate located in Eastern Nepal, producing mostly black tea.

Green tea is the second most consumed type of real tea, and is often considered the healthiest type because of the high levels of catechins. The most important catechin in green tea is EGCG. Green tea is processed differently than black tea. Once harvested, tea leaves are usually withered, then steamed or pan fired. This step stops the oxidation process and preserves the color, flavor, and benefits. Next, leaves are rolled and dried. It can have a range of flavors – from very light and grassy to strong and smoky, toasty and nutty or floral.
