Benoy Thapa of Thunderbolt Tea, Darjeeling.
ThunderboltTea.com is the best place online to buy the best teas from Darjeeling. I had a chance to meet him and talk tea when I was visiting India in May 2013.
Benoy visits estates in Darjeeling throughout the tea seasons (spring, summer, fall) to sample the latest products. He selects a relatively small selection of Darjeelings to sell and they’re all incredible. Anything you purchase is going to be great.
And if you order something from Thunderbolt Tea you receive a package wrapped with a canvas bag, sewn shut and sealed with a bit of wax. Quite exotic to receive a package that looks like it came from the past.
