Flavor Profiles of Farmer’s Green Tea Reserve: Nepal's Rarest Green Tea

Farmers' Green is one of Nepal's most precious, single-origin green teas. Crafted in small batches by artisanal tea producer Sharad Subba. Cultivated on organic farms of the remote and high-altitude tea mountains in Eastern Nepal, Farmer's Green is unique for its gentle and buttery mouthfeel, complete lack of bitterness and an umami aftertaste. 

At a first glance, the tea leaves can be confused with the famous Jasmine Pearls green tea from China.  Both teas are rolled into small pearls, with a deceptive silvery hue that many tea drinkers associate with white tea. However, unlike Jasmine Pearls, Farmers' Green is completely unscented, it's fragrance and aroma true to the tender tea leaves from which the tea is crafted.

Making of the One-Of-A-Kind Green Tea Leaves. 

The secrets of the beauty and complex flavors of Farmer’s Green lies in its name itself. Farmer’s Green green tea leaves were crafted by one of the best tea artisans in Nepal: Sharad Subba. 

Farmers' Green Green tea leaves

Sharad Subba’s farm lies in the Himalayan Mountain valley, at an altitude of 6000ft above sea level. At this incredible height, Sharad’s farm enjoys snowy winds from the mountains, pristine snow-melt waters, and mineral-rich soils that allow the best of green tea flavonoids to gather in the young leaves and buds of the tea plants. These flavonoids not only translate into a delicious and flavorful cup of tea, but also give you a wealth of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, without any of the bitterness you usually associate with green teas. 

Whatsmore, the green tea farms are completely organic, which ensures that the true, deeply flavorful taste of the tea is unaltered by the addition of chemical fertilizers and harmful pesticides. Once a year in the summer-time, the top leaf and bud of these tea plants are gently hand-plucked, and traditionally processed into a beautiful silver-green tea.

With 20 years of experience in the tea industry, Sharad Subba is a tea maker who has journeyed from being a tea plucker to a tea maker in big factories. Longing for more creative freedom and driven by the art of experimental teas, Sharad took the bold leap of opening his own factory. It was there that, after three years of careful crafting, that he finally perfected the rare and gorgeous Farmer’s Green tea! He dedicates this tea to all the tea makers who choose the unconventional path.
