From the Antu Valley Tea Estate in Antu Ridge part of Nepal. Antu Ridge is nestled in the foothills of the snow covered Himalayan Range and grows some of the finest tea in the world. The original Darjeeling grant of 1828 from the Raja of Sikkim was a hilly tract lying between the Mahananda and Balasan rivers. In 1838, Dr. Campbell resolved the long pending issue of the boundary between Sikkim and Nepal and the hilly tract between the Mechi and Balasan rivers was added to the Darjeeling grant. Thus the Antu Ridge - beyond the Mechi River, remained a part of Nepal. Antu Ridge is located in the geographical extension, contiguous to both Nepal and Darjeeling part of India. Situated at an altitude of 1600 feet, Antu, at times wrongly spelt Oontoo Ridge is a breath taking sight. The pristine purity of the environment, the natural beauty of the lower area of the Singalila range of the eastern Himalayas has proved to be highly favourable to the cultivation of the High grown 'Bio-Clonal Teas'. Present Ilam teas of Nepal are grown on these ridges, which face the beautiful Kanchanjunga Peaks. Antu Valley produces high grown Orthodox Ilam (Nepal) Teas, which are the finest in the world. The pollution free surroundings, the cool and moist climate, the soil, the rainfall and the sloping terrain all combine to give Antu teas unique flavour and distinctive bouquet. The young clonal bushes and the 'Silver Tips' help make - Antu teas unique. Being a relatively small producer in terms of quantity, the Antu Valley Tea Estate is able to maintain strict quality control during every stage of manufacturing process, done under hygienic conditions in a near dust and bacteria free environment. Biological cultivation of clonal tea add the extra edge over any other brand of Tea. To learn more about the Antu Valley Tea Estate visit the following link:
