This Grand Cru is grown in the Ilam valley region. It is made at the Siddha Devi Tea Estate, a little-known tea garden that had been abandoned until it was rebuilt in 2018. In 2021, it restarted tea production.
This Himalayan tea has a lively and fresh aromatic profile, as well as vegetal, camphor, and fruity notes and a long finish.
