Jun Chiyabari is an organic tea garden founded in 2001, located in the eastern part of the Himalayan region of Nepal, next to Ilam and Darjeeling. The philosophy of this high-altitude (1400m-1800m) modern tea garden is entirely focused on quality and a good example of what high-altitude tea can offer. Jun Chiyabari is a fairly young tea garden located near Hile. The estate is family owned and run by Bachan and Lochan Gyalwali. Apart from having very experienced tea masters and managers from Darjeeling, who have worked in famous gardens such as Margaret's Hope, Castleton, Selimbong and so on, they are also trained by tea masters from Taiwan and Japan, which has led to innovative tea with its own unique Nepalese character. The tea garden has been certified organic from the start. In addition to having their own tea garden, they also work together with other tea farmers. They believe in sustainable agriculture with an emphasis on bio-diversity and are committed to organic cultivation. They also support the local community, farmers, local schools, children and retirement homes. They provide interest-free loans for their employees and schemes that guarantee a good price for tea. In addition, the farmers are of course assisted with help with all aspects related to the cultivation of tea, the latest developments and trends. All this is managed by a committee composed of employees and management. Through this income and the granting of loans, people can also build other livelihoods. Jun Chiyabari is a respected name in the community.
