The story goes that in the second half of the 1800s, the Chinese Emperor Daougang gave the Nepalese Prime Minister, Maharaja Junga Bahadur Rana, some tea plants. Hence, tea cultivation was started in the easternmost regions, namely in the district of Ilam. Today, Nepal produces high quality tea through small family farms.

It goes well with pannacotta, raspberries, delicate salads, steamed greens
