About

Nepal Tea is a social enterprise that distributes the freshest teas from Nepal around the world. This tea comes directly from the foothills of Mt. Kanchanjangha, the third highest mountain in the world. 

Nepal Tea, as a company, envisions pulling a million Nepali tea farmers out of the vicious cycle of poverty within their generation. They're creating a tech-enabled transparent tea trade to connect primary producers to the ultimate consumers!

Founding Story

Nepal Tea was founded in 2016 by Nishchal Banskota with an idea of a social business venture with the hopes of providing best quality tea to the tea drinkers worldwide. Nepal Tea is a continuation of the multi-generational efforts dating back to the 1960s when Deepak Prakash Banskota, Nischchal’s father, first visited Darjeeling, India. After witnessing the blooming tea industry less than a hundred miles away from his home, he came back to Phidim,Nepal with a vision to uplift his community from poverty with tea. Deepak began his tea estate in his own backyard and slowly convinced Nepali community to invest and learn more about the tea world. Currently, Kanchanjunga Tea Estate, Nepal’s first certified organic tea garden, covers land pooled from more than 100 Nepali farmers. They are Nepal Tea’s most esteemed supply partners helping us buy our products from the farmers directly. By keeping the channel clean, the farmers get maximum benefit and our valued customers receive the freshest produce of the year packed directly from the tea estate.
