Thanks to all our #tea friends who buy Darjeeling Teas from us. Most of our teas are gone, sold! Waiting for new pure Darjeeling First Flush 2016 teas - http://goo.gl/7MDht1 Cheers! #darjeelingtea
 
Update: We had two grades of Castleton Moonlight the previous year during the Darjeeling First Flush season, namely "Castleton Moonlight" (EX-3) and "Castleton Moonlight Imperial" (EX-1). The invoice with EX-1 got sold within a matter of days. The EX-3 invoice was in bulk quantity, but all gone. During the Second Flush season, we got hold of the excellent Imperial version of Moonlight and bought invoice DJ-122. This too was only available with us and now all gone. Thanks to all our #Tea Friends who purchased it! Now looking forward for the new Darjeeling First Flush 2016 teas. Tea samples have started coming, but I guess we have to hold on to our horses for a few more days for the peak quality to be persistent - the real First Flush character to be present. Thank you all for your patience, please do keep a tab on our First Flush page on our site for any new tea updates - http://bit.ly/darjeeling-first-flush-2016 We will also be announcing here! Thank you! Have a great day! #darjeelingfirstflush2016

Tea workers in a #Darjeeling Tea factory shifting basket full of broken leaves after being sorted by the sorting machine. These normally form the basis of traditional #tea bags. Whole leaf grades are here :) - http://goo.gl/vJWJSf Have a Great Day!

Withering is one of the most important stage in the manufacture of #Tea‬. After plucking, tea is spread on withering racks, equally spread in order to achieve even withering. There certainly is a time frame of one night, meaning 10-12 hours at temperature of about 90 F, but this is not enough. An experienced tea maker has to be present to deduce if the leaf is properly withered or not by merely taking the tea leaves in his hand. One secret - How to know if a tea is withered properly? When one takes a handful and squeezes, it has a gummy effect and sticks together in a lump, it is sufficiently withered. There are other factors relating to the type of raw tea leaves being brought whether tender or developed. This however has to be treated accordingly. Enjoy one of the process your tea has gone under smile emoticon #teafacts Eagerly waiting for the "pure" Darjeeling First Flush 2016 teas. http://bit.ly/darjeeling-first-flush-2016 Cheers! #darjeelingfirstflush

Story
Tagline
Simply love Darjeeling Tea! Slurrrp!!
Introduction
I live and drink tea, consume about 10+ cups of tea a day with Darjeeling Tea being a favorite! Although love oolong teas and green teas, Darjeeling black teas are a fav and addictive!

Apart from the tea drinking habit, I buy exotic varieties of Darjeeling Tea every tea season namely First Flush Darjeeling, Second Flush Darjeeling and Autumn Flush Darjeeling Teas. I in turn sell these exotic Darjeeling Tea varieties through my Tea company which is based in Darjeeling. I source it direct from the tea gardens by personally visiting them and tasting the tea samples available. All these exquisite varieties of Darjeeling Teas are sold through my tea company's (Thunderbolt Tea) website which you can check below! 

Thunderbolt Tea SPECIALIZES IN DARJEELING TEA AND WE SELL ONLY DARJEELING TEAS STRICTLY - we don't sell any other tea as I would like to know what I am selling and Darjeeling Tea being my hometown product with which I grew side by side provides me with ample information and makes me specialize in it. Anyway, I wouldn't like to lure and sell to customers teas with limited knowledge of the product itself :)

Happy Tea Sipping!
