The 2018 Makaibari Season
The first set of 2018 samples arrived and were cupped. Good, sharp astringency to the cup, characteristic greenish hue to the infused leaf, floral note to the aroma - all excellent signs of another successful first flush. Air freight ordered - expect it stateside early-mid May at the very latest. Stay tuned.
Although Rajah Banerjee, the renowned owner of Makaibari, has stepped down from the chairmanship of the estate, he has left behind his trusted managers and employees who will carry the tea garden forward. Look for Makaibari and other Darjeeling teas this year on our site. Rajah has agreed to select, sample and forward to us his recommendations for Himalayan teas - Darjeeling, Sikkim & Nepal. We look forward to introducing you to new teas this year. For fans of Makaibari - they will still be offered.
As usual, the previous season's teas are available at a discount. Keep in mind, we are the only company that clearly distinguishes between seasons and we will not pass off old stock as new. You have our word on it - it is our guarantee to you.
