Separated from Nepal by a simple stream, the Okayti tea estate, founded in 1888, harvests some of the most exquisite teas in the world for TWG Tea. The lush gardens are spread out over undulating terrain at altitudes of 1,300 to 2,000 metres. The first flush is eagerly awaited by connoisseurs each spring.
This harvest boasts delicate pistachio-green rolled leaves which exude a pronounced flavour of mangoes, papaya and guava. A shimmering topaz-coloured infusion yields a buttery aroma with a round, mellow finish and boasts a lengthy aftertaste of grassy meadows and wild flowers. The preferred tea of Queen Victoria.
