KATHMANDU -- The political unrest halting tea production since June in India's Darjeeling region has European buyers looking toward Himalayan Shangri-La Tea Producers, a company in neighboring Nepal.

"French and British tea buyers have visited us to seek alternative sourcing of orthodox tea," Kamal Raj Mainali, director of Himalayan Shangri-La Tea Producers, told the Nikkei Asian Review. The company is Nepal's largest organic orthodox tea producer.
