Only at the end of a long journey through Nepal's winding roads will you discover one of the world’s most well-kept secrets in terms of tea gardens: Shangri-La. Here, a far cry from urban hustle and bustle, time seems to have stood still. The garden nestles in the heart of the Ilam valley, to the far east of Nepal. At 2,400 metres above sea level, and facing the picturesque panorama of the Himalayas, total serenity reigns, together with an ideal climate for cultivating Great Teas of Legend.
Every year in early spring, after winter hibernation, the tea trees awaken and their young shoots, rich in antioxidants, yield unique notes, heralding the advent of extremely elegant green and white teas. Preserved for Chinese Emperors in bygone days, white tea is obtained using a unique production process. The leaves are neither rolled nor baked but dried naturally to preserve the quality of their flavours.
