The tea- Chai

Indians love tea. The love for tea came to India more than two hundreds years ago when the British started colonizing India. Although they left more  than seventy years back, but many of their colonial culture still remain in India, Tea is one of them. Making tea is different in parts of India. It depends on the culture, the environment, the weather, the quality of tea. Tea is grown in three parts of India, one in Darjeeling, one in Assam, and last one in Nilgiri, Southern Part of India. 


The Darjeeling tea is famous for fruity flavor, whereas the Assam tea is for liquor. You can put milk and sugar in Darjeeling tea, but milk and sugar usually destroy the flavor of actual tea. So, usually Darjeeling tea is drunk as black, whereas Assam tea is drunk with milk and sugar.

 
I don’t know from when I started drinking tea. I think I had started drinking tea from a very tender age. When I was young I used to put a whole lot of milk, and sugar in my tea. My mom used to tell me, whether it is tea or sherbet. As I grow up taste has changed, tea making has also changed. Now my tea type has changed from sherbet to proper tea, without sugar and milk. However habit of drinking tea twice a day is still there, rather it has increased. 


In our home, both of us is great tea drinker. Our type of tea changes in the course of time. We used to drink tea with milk and sugar, before switching to liquor Darjeeling tea. In the morning we drink the pure Darjeeling liquor tea, and evening is for typical Indian Chai. 


As we both love pure Darjeeling tea, we had been searching for good quality tea for our morning time. A cup of good quality Darjeeling tea really boost up mind and energy in the morning. He had been searching for premium quality tea in the stores, as well as online, but he failed to get good quality within normal price range. Either the quality was not satisfactory, or the price was exorbitant. After getting tired of searching Mr. Man and one his close friend decided to launch a business of good quality tea from Darjeeling tea estates. Living for ten years with a headstrong person, I knew that it would be better to join the band wagon than to pursue him to refrain his mind. 

So, we started studying about tea, and searching how to import Darjeeling tea. Last time when went to India, we visited many places for this very reason. After working almost for one year Mr. Man and his friend has finally launched a tea company in 2018. Currently they are selling both organic and conventional/regular Darjeeling Tea online.  I request to all my tea lover friends to visit their website www.freshcarton.com or, Facebook page. Currently they are selling within US only. Please check, and you will know more about types of tea, brewing of tea and their business. Above all you can get fine quality of Darjeeling tea if you purchase from their online store.

Very good Krishna! I only drink tea with some milk but no sugar. Tea without milk stains my poor teeth badly. I do love tea though. Wishing all the best with the new business.

Dearest Krishna,
Interesting and congrats for your new company!
We mainly drink green tea, for health reason.
The Dutch always have consumed lots of tea, they were also the traders via the Dutch East India Company, who shipped tea to Europe. It first was popular in France, than The Netherlands and finally England adopted it.
Sending you hugs,
Mariette
