I am looking forward to coming back to get more Earl Gray. and others. Thank you so much.
I realize I didn't actually review the tea itself. The description says it contains floral notes which is very accurate- it's delightfully neutral with subtle fruity undertones. Really spectacular.
I had some questions on this order (wondering how similar the Tippy tea was to the Himalayan royal ruby tea; they come from the same tea estate) and the owner, as always, kindly answered them! Even with two locations now, he still responds to everything customers ask. Pretty amazing.
Great choice of tea. Great people. Great choice of tea.
I am only writing this review becasue I am going to make sure that Niraj guarantees me a years supply of this tea. Every year I swoon over one estate, Turzum, Sungma, Arya and Puttabong have all made my top tea list in the last 4 years. I have been a Darjeeling drinker for 40 years, 1st initiated into royal jungpana decades ago. Each year Niraj picks teas that beat the last years best. I am not sure how he does it. Go to leaf and taste this tea as soon as you can. Then buy a big supply. I will wait to see what else comes this year, but Jun Chiayabari is going to be hard to beat. I am not saying its the best ever only becasue i don't want my lovely Darjeeling teas to feel hurt. Niraj please buy up as much as you can now.
