Uplifting Darjeeling is a deep and toasty black loose leaf tea that's both warming and nourishing.
The livelihood of around 180 farmers is closely tied to Bhawesh Niroula’s tea factory in the village of Chotta Poobong, Darjeeling. Created by Bhawesh's father in 2015, the factory is an initiative that has created dozens of local jobs. "Our cooperative and independent tea-processing facility offers our employees and farming partners two to three times the average tea garden rate in Darjeeling, while also providing people with purpose, livelihoods, and hope for the future at a time when many young people are leaving Darjeeling’s farming villages for the city."
Supporting this project through your purchase will enable it to become profitable. The profits can then be allocated to important local social causes such as women's empowerment, education, and entrepreneurship.
