We've been partnered with Nepali Tea Traders for the past year, featuring their teas and their commitment to the Nepal tea industry. They've become great friends of ours and we're huge supporters of their efforts in Nepal. When news broke of the devastating earthquake in Nepal, we were immediately heartbroken. In situations like these, it is often difficult to know how we as individuals a far distance away from the devastation, can help.

Nepali Tea Traders have ensured us their friends and colleagues in Kathmandu and in the tea farming region are safe. They have found out from their friends in Nepal where the urgent needs are and have responded by launching the 'Nepali Tea' Restoration Fund.
Nepal is a new origin for many, but has started to gain recognition recently. Their Himalayan Golden Black tea was awarded 1st place in the recent North American Tea Championship.

Nepali Tea Traders is in continued contact with those impacted in Nepal. Funds are going directly to Nepalese efforts to supply food, medical supplies and shelter.
The Ilam region (the part of Nepal where our teas are grown) has remained relatively untouched. But, as you likely know, the devastation is enormous, and things will likely get worse before they get better. Much of the already challenged infrastructure (roads, communications, healthcare, etc.) has been destroyed, and that will certainly impact all aspects of life there, including the tea industry. The needs are tremendous, and Nepal will be rebuilding for years to come.
We support and share Nepali Tea Traders commitment to help Nepal by building a sustainable tea economy. The earthquake and its destruction has strengthened their resolve, and they will continue to work with their partners in Nepal to build their business, support the farmers and factories that supply our tea and improve lives in a meaningful, sustainable way.
