Jungpana is located in a rather narrow crest in the Himalayas. Hidden from the general view - a road is actually still to connect this tea garden - this garden is recognized for its high quality tea. Many high end stores like Harrods  and Mariage (France) purvey Jungpana tea.

We have the pleasure of introducing this tea for our customers for the first time this first flush.
