More about Everest
Nepalese teas are usually grown at high altitude. This is not surprising since Nepal is well-known as a mountain kingdom. Everest is the highest peak in the world, standing at 8,848 above sea level. But did you know that Mauna Kea in Hawaii is taller, if measured from base to summit?
Ilam is one of the major tea contributors in Nepal. It is located opposite the infamous Darjeeling area, well known for its black teas.
