Mist Valley Tea is situated in Jitpur, a small rural village in the eastern part of Nepal. Often enveloped by mist and fog, Jitpur has rightfully earned the nickname “Mist Valley” in the region. The company and the tea garden proudly associates itself with Jitpur’s heritage with it’s name.
Mist Valley Tea was founded by the late Asal Bahadur Limbu, an ex-Gurkha major who fought for the british army during worl war II, and his son Suresh Limbu, who is now the principal owner of the company.
What makes Mist Valley Tea different from other tea producers in Nepal is it’s own tea gardens that are manicured with utmost care. In addition to it’s own tea garden, Mist Valley Tea also boasts it’s own factory for processing and packaging of some of Nepal’s finest tea. It currently produces around 100,000 kgs of premium tea in a year.
In addition to producing tea form it’s own tea garden, Mist Valley also works with other tea farmers around the region.
