Short Intro
White Prakash is a velvety floral premium organic white tea with vanilla top-notes, and spring blossoms, muscatel, and melted butter flavors.

Ingredients
White Tea (Camellia Sinensis)

Story
White Prakash is a delicate white tea dedicated to our founder Nishchal’s father, Mr. Deepak Prakash Banskota. It was Deepak Prakash who, in 1984, planted the first tea garden in Phidim. He went on to found the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate and Research center, our partner farm, where all our loose-leaf organic teas are cultivated and hand-crafted. It is in his honor that we crafted this specialty white tea, with its complex and satisfying flavors. With notes of buttercream, vanilla and the aroma of fresh flowers, this tea has won several awards and is one of our most-loved teas.

Producer
Kanchanjangha Tea Estate and Research Center Pvt. Ltd. (KTERC). KTERC is the first certified organic tea garden in Nepal that was established in 1984 by Mr. Deepak Prakash Baskota to rid his community of poverty. It remains a model social enterprise still today, that runs on cooperative infrastructure and is truly focused on the people and planet before profit.

Production Details
This is definitely not your typical delicate organic white tea as it does not use the same production methods as traditional white tea. Generally, the tender one leaf and a bud are hand-plucked during Spring and Summer (First Flush and Second Flush respectively). Unlike other white teas which go through virtually no processing, our White Prakash tea undergoes a small process which makes it unique and special. Some even call this tea Silvery Oolong and you’ll find out why as you read along. The tea leaves are set to go through natural withering for a few hours depending on the weather conditions. After the leaves have sufficiently softened, they are transferred to a rolling machine under low-medium pressure. With a quick 8-10 minutes rolling process, the tea leaves are able to ooze out some of their essential oils, which fill the room with amazingly fresh floral aroma. This is captured right after to lock in all the fresh aroma though the drying process.

Origin
Our tea garden is nestled in the foothills of Mt. Kanchanjangha, the third highest mountain in the world, in the eastern part of Nepal. Located precisely near the western borders of Darjeeling, India and north of the Illam, the most famous tea growing region in Nepal, our small village enjoys the best of both worlds. Situated at an altitude of 1300-1800 meters (4,200 – 6000 feet), the area enjoys pristine himalayan climatic conditions to produce highly unique and aromatic teas.

Who is it for?
This Nepal white tea is sure to delight any fans of Bai Mu Dan White tea or lighter Taiwanese Oolong Teas. Also, anyone who is trying to expand their palate in lighter teas will enjoy the amazing complexity that this white tea can bring out. Some of our customers have described it as the most intriguing and satisfying tea that they have ever had. No wonder it won the Bronze Medal in the Global Tea Championship 2019 and has also won multiple other awards in various tea festivals globally.
