Young Mountain Tea partners with small producers across India and Nepal to support community-led and cooperatively-organized tea production - focused on loose-leaf, Organic, single origin teas made in small batches.

Kumaon Black is a rare Organic black tea from a new Himalayan tea region in north India. This fragrant tea carries a light body reminiscent of its Darjeeling counterparts, yet its unique vegetal finish sets it apart.

Kumaon was first planted with tea in the 1850s, but was too far from any port to get the tea out of the mountains. The tea experiments were abandoned, and for the last 170 years, the tea has thrived in the wild. Beginning in the 1990s, the government took up a program to revive tea growth as a way to create rural livelihood opportunities.
