“High Quality Tea Comes From The Himalayas”
With its unique geography, topography and climate, Nepal has the most conductive environment for tea cultivation. High altitude, diverse agro-ecology, biodiversity, natural resources, virgin organic soil and mineral water which are naturally gifted to Nepal enable us to cultivate high-quality tea leaves.
AWARD – BRANDING
Nepal’s tea is unique in terms of texture, aroma and taste. Tea lovers, once they taste the tea from Nepal, are fond of Nepali teas. Nepal’s tea production quantity is relatively lesser, hence it is lesser known across the globe.
Jhapa, Ilam, Panchthar, Dhankuta, Terhathum are the major tea producing regions in Nepal. Of late, with the growing demand of Nepali tea home and abroad, the tea production has been extended to the new regions in the country including Kaski, Dolakha, Kavre, Sindhupalchok, Bhojpur, Solukhumbu and Nuwakot.
Currently, Nepal produces approximately 16.29 million kilograms of tea per year in an area of 16,718 hectares. This is only 0.4% of the total world tea output. Yet, the Nepali tea is in high demand across the globe. The teas from Nepal are mainly exported to India, Pakistan, Australia, Germany, France, Poland, the Netherlands, Japan, Belgium and the United States of America.
WORKING WITH LOCAL TEA FARMERS
Everest Organic Home is working with local farmers and those from marginalized communities in the tea production. Basically, we work on maintaining a value chain to add values to the labor of the local farmers. However, their labor is not much valued since there is a vulnerable value chain linking with production.
More than 100,000 farmers and others are directly and indirectly involved in tea farming. Nepal’s tea industry relies on more than 80 percent of tea products coming from small scale farmers. It is a source of livelihood for the farmers and local people. Tea production requires intensive labour because picking tea leaves is year-round work. The tea buds are picked routinely otherwise they turn into leaves within a few days. The tea buds after they are picked need to be processed within 24 hours. More than 70 percent of tea leaves pickers are women.
Thanks to the USAID, DANIDA and few other donors for their capacity building training to the local farmers in producing organic and high quality teas. Much work is still required to maintain the value chain to benefit the locals. However, there is a vulnerable link in the value chain. Nepal’s tea industry has not been able to penetrate the global market in a significant way.
We do not need aid now but what we require now is the trade. Everest Organic Home chips in fulfilling the gap and contribute with the promotion and trade worldwide. Your support in our mission adds to the best value.
Our mission is to promote Nepal’s authentic tea worldwide and reach out to the tea lovers with our high-quality products.
