Giribandhu Tea Estate

Giri Bandhu Tea Estate is a large sized tea company based in Jhapa, Nepal. Founded in the early 1960s by late Padam Padam Bahadur Giri, it is one of the biggest players in the Nepalese Tea industry. The company is located just off Birtamod, and is visible on both sides of the Mahendra HWY. The company is the largest CTC manufacturer in Nepal. It operates and runs two tea estates and a large and highly modernized processing plant.

History

The tea estate was founded in the 1950s by late Padam Bahadur Giri, and has been a family run business since then. The estates started off small, producing small quantity of processed tea, but has now become one of the most prominent tea estates in Nepal.

Location

The estate is located on either side of the Mahendra Rajmarg, to the east of Birtamod, a small town. The estate is visible from the road, and is often a stopping point for many people just passing by the area wanting to take photographs. The majority of the estates property is not visible from the highway as it spreads out multiple km to either side of the road. The estate also has its own factory located just off the road surrounded by the estate itself, for the processing of the green leaves.
