Indian and Nepalese Teas

Our Teas

We have sold loose tea for over 70 years. First selling and wrapping the tea on the counter and now, due to high demand, packing the tea in advance but still from the same suppliers.
All our tea is still hand packed in brown kraft bags.


All prices quoted are for a 125g bag except where specified. Please choose a quantity and add to cart.

Assam tea is produced in the far northeast corner of India. This historically-important tea growing region fills the valley of the Brahmaputra River as it snakes down from the southeastern flank of the Himalayas. With Burma (Myanmar) to the east and Bangladesh to the south, this valley receives more rainfall per annum than any other location on earth. Assam tea is noted for its depth of flavour, dark burgundy-colored liquor, and ‘malty’ taste. Thought of in the west as a ‘milk tea’, Assam tea is drunk by Assamese without milk, but elsewhere in India it is often the base for quality chai, the national beverage.Lower grade than our TGFOP large leaf variety. Brew for 2-4 minutes.

Darjeeling is a former British hill-station and spa located in one of the most spectacular settings of the entire Himalayas. Considered the Champagne of Tea, Darjeeling tea is beloved worldwide for its clarity, Muscatel-like aroma and clear, smooth flavour. Developed using 100% China bush, blended China and Assam bush, or using clonal, modern varietals, Darjeeling teas vary considerably from Garden to Garden, much the way that Burgundy wines vary from property to property. Brew for 2-3 minutes.

This Nepalese tea has replaced our previous Nepalese High Grown Tea. It is an even better quality tea.

Tea production in Nepal started off sponsored by the government. The tea estates are on the slopes of the Himalayas. This large leaf Nepalese tea is mild and aromatic. Similar to a Darjeeling. Muscatel flavour with a hint of almond. Most tea is consumed in Nepal itself. Only small quantities go into export. Brew for 2-2.5 minutes.
