Enjoyed reading your profile on your web site. Looks like you carry some really good Darjeeling and Nilgiri. Having the ability to get samples is good too. I added to your TF profile your Instagram and Facebook links. More or less when do you think first flush will be available on your site this year?

Hi - missed this comment somehow, so apologies for the delay in response.

Ah FF sourcing! What I look forward to and dread at the same time. The prices of the early invoice teas have made me delay my sourcing. The dust is just settling and I'm actually headed to India in a couple of weeks. I would like to say May, but realistically it might be June before I physically have the teas with me. You can be sure I will inform everyone the second they reach!

Thank you for adding the links!

Good morning - this is Vikram at Yatra Tea Company! Hope everyone had a good weekend.

We have a new site, reviews (MANY thanks to those that have returned to retroactively add a review!), and most importantly, new teas!

We'd love for you to try our curated collection, so through Friday all teas (samples and full-sized variants) are available for 20% off with code "TWENTY" at checkout. While we're no longer offering a pre-set sampler, you have full flexibility to pick and choose samples of your choice to create your own tasting set!

- Darjeeling (https://yatrateacompany.com/collections ... darjeeling) - delicious semi-oxidized black teas from Goomtee and Thurbo, rarely produced white and oolong teas from Castleton, and vegetal, high altitude green teas from Glenburn and Gopaldhara. Gopaldhara's Mao Feng is new in shop and is a delicious, fruity smelling green tea - a must try if you like green teas!

- Nilgiri (https://yatrateacompany.com/collections ... on_nilgiri) - three new teas from the recent Winter Flush. Smooth, fruity, light black teas is a hallmark of Nilgiri winter production! Our selections are from Glendale, Kodanad, and Craigmore.

- Assam (https://yatrateacompany.com/collections ... gion_assam) - our sole offering from Halmari Estate is arguably the best Assam being produced in the region at present

- Nepal (https://yatrateacompany.com/collections ... gion_nepal) - our current offering from Sakhira Estate rivals the best Darjeeling teas - a must try for those who haven't experienced teas from Nepal!

- Chai (https://yatrateacompany.com/collections ... ction_chai) - no South Asian tea shop would be complete without a chai offering! Made with a Nilgiri black tea and fresh spices, this is an absolutely delicious chai!

Thanks for the opportunity to bring you these teas!

Have a good week ahead!

Browse our selection of premium, direct sourced, single origin teas from Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiri, and Nepal! And let's not forget our delicious chai!

There's something for every mood and palate in our shop!

Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful week ahead!

Recently returned from India and managed to bring back a delicious, early invoice Darjeeling First Flush Tea from Puttabong Estate. This is a March 2019 plucking from the DJ 04 invoice. Typically, I find early invoice teas a bit finicky and opt for the later invoices that tend to be more mellow.

But this one cupped beautifully. A lot of favors were called in to secure the small amount I have. A must try for aficionado and newbie and everyone in between!

Valid through the end of Wednesday.

Ours is a small though thoughtfully curated catalog of premium, single origin teas from Darjeeling, the Nilgiris, Assam, and Nepal. Plus a delicious chai!

Good afternoon. Hope you tea lovers had a nice weekend! To get your week started off on the right foot, Yatra Tea Company is offering a 20% discount on all teas now through end of day Friday. Code is TFORUM20. Or you can simply click on https://yatrateacompany.com/discount/TFORUM20 to have the code automatically applied at checkout.

We have received quite a few requests to add back our previously sold sampler. Even though you can purchase individual samples of each tea (except the chai), we've created a product called the Yatra Sampler. This selection of 9 teas is a solid representation of what we offer.

Thanks for supporting our small endeavor. We hope you send you some teas this week!

Best,
Vikram
