Kumaon White, Organic
Sometimes we don't always purchase the best tea. Sometimes we buy a tea because it's important.
The Kumaon tea project is intended to revive tea production in the area, to create rural livelihood opportunities. The project currently pays 200 Kumaon families 5 to 10 times the average rates received by Indian farmers, to produce 120,000 pounds of tea annually.
The Kumaon White is hand-harvested in spring, from newly sprouted buds. It has a slightly greener flavor than traditional whites that is refreshing and ends in a buttery, honeydew melon note.
