    Jun Chiyabari Nepal on COVID-19 and First Flush 2020

    Last week we received an email from Bachan Gyawali, the owner of the farm, updating us about the current status at Jun Chiyabari.

    Himalayan Green Tea Meets the Ocean

    It is always exciting to receive reviews from our customers. Tea is a personal experience – as someone rightly described, each cup is a voyage - so descriptions of the same tea by different people can vary. And, that enhances our own experience of the cup.

    A visit to Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden

    It was pandemonium at the Indo-Nepal border: long lines of trucks stalled on the Indian side, crowd milling through haywire traffic, groups of angry men yelling, motorists pounding on their horns, determined families dragging their children and luggage, garbage and dust flying all over.
