Nepal

Nepal, in South Asia, is located between China (in the north) and India (in the south), produces tea, long considered as a a cousin of Darjeeling tea in its appearance, aroma and fruity taste. The eastern zones of Nepal, which are the main tea producing regions of Nepal have more or less the same geographical and topographical conditions as the Darjeeling.  Recently,some tea gardens have taken on a more progressive approach and are begining to introduce differentstyles and characters of tea.  Today, Nepal’s tea industry is dominated by private players, whereas in the 1990s the tea industry was a Government monopoly prior to the liberalization of the tea industry. Until 2003, Nepal’s tea exported accounted for only about 80 – 100 tons per annum. However, due to the liberalization adopted about a decade ago, Nepal tea industry witnessed an exponential rise in the exports of its tea, accounting for almost 4,000 – 5,000 tons per annum.
