The cultivation of Guranse Emerald Green takes place on one of the highest tea estates in the world, at around 3,000 meters in Nepal.
The Himalayan winds coming from Mount Everest arrive in the bushes, and the plants give delicate, twisted leaves. Hence the Guranse Emerald Green, a refreshing green tea, with an intense aroma between vegetable and fruity notes (plum). It is slightly astringent, full-bodied on the palate and sweet on the sip, with a soft character and notes of "muscat" flavor, incomparable with any other tea.
