Amateurs of oddities will be served with this rare green tea from Bhutan.

Even more than served. In Samcholing village, 43 acres of land were dedicated to tea farming and a micro-factory was put in place to produce an average of 600 kg of fresh leaves each year. The only tea production in the country.

The project, led by an all-women cooperative, represent a serious accomplishment on both socio-cultural and agricultural levels. Bringing dignity and financial stability to the 27 families living there, the tea fields, sitting at 1800m high, produce one of the finest raw material on the planet.

Taste wise, this tea defines itself by its unique origin. Nothing closely resembles it. No parallel can be adequately drawn.

A definite rusticity in character opposes a smooth texture and aromatic complexity, pointing towards refinement. Notes of butter-fried vegetables, seashells and straw all melt into a vibrant finish, loaded with spicy touches.
