This Grand Cru is harvested in the valley of Ilam. It comes from a small nature reserve called Mai Pokhari, which is considered sacred in the Hindu and Buddhist faiths. The tea garden took its name from the reserve. This tea is from a second flush.
A rich and gourmet tea that coats the palate with its smooth texture and its powerful toasted and fruity fragrances.
