Mist Valley is an exceptional tea from Nepal with the same character and quality as its neighbour, Darjeeling. It is a delightfully distinctive tea with gentle nutmeg overtones.
Nepal Mist Valley Tea grows on pristine sloped gardens in the small hilly village of Jitpur, 1,400 metres, 4,600, feet above sea level. The garden is often shrouded in mist and fog, earning Jitpur the nickname 'Mist Valley'. Bordering Darjeeling in the eastern part of Nepal, its teas share similar qualities.
Mist Valley Tea is a long-leafed and tippy tea, best enjoyed in the afternoon. Its leaves make a light amber cup that is perfect for drinking black.
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Best drunk without milk.
