Why We Love It: We love this tea on its own for the fantastic taste and muscatel grape notes - but, its origin story is one we’re especially proud of. Farmed by members of a local small grower society, led by Yankhu Tamang, this tea was grown small batch with a progressive mission. Large estates dominate the industry in India, emphasizing quantity over quality, often at the cost of workers' welfare. By supporting small growers, we can help make better tea and better ethics a reality in the region.
