Just got my order of Autumn Flush 2013 Giddhapahar this morning. I was amazed at the packaging. Inside the humble cloth was a carton, inside of which was a sealed pack. Inside of THAT was another sealed pack, which contained the tea. They really take their packaging seriously. Their customer service is very friendly and helpful, and Niranjan himself patiently answered all of my tea newbie questions. As I opened the package, I was hit by this wonderful aroma. The tea was an instant hit with the family. My mom especially loves it. This definitely won’t be my last order from DTB, and I’m definitely never going back to teabags. Well worth the wait.
Israel Soltura, Phillipines
” I think your teas are excellent. The price for the tea is reasonable but in combination with shipping costs it is high.”
Al Solomon, USA (Order count No.7)
DTB replied: “We do have a solution for that. DTB has a free shipping option available for tea lovers ordering above $75.”
“I received your package of Darjeeling teas this morning-(your packaging is exceptional; beautifully handwritten on cloth and sealed). I am completely satisfied with the India Post service.
Now to the tea; I brewed a cup of Puttabong 2nd flush. The taste-(no sugar, no milk or lemon)-pure, is what I expect from a really good Darjeeling tea, I love the muscatel taste. I am glad that, in you, I have
finally found the right address for true Darjeeling teas. I will give your business cards to friends who
enjoy a good cup of tea.” Oliver Loeb, Switzerland.
“Thank you for the tea. I am having a good cup of tea probably after many years since I came to USA…. As soon as the post man delivered the tea i could not wait to have a cup of tea.
You have made my day.
I will be in touch with you.
Bires Chaudhuri, USA
“Thank you for your kind reply. I believe that I have finally found the company from which I can procure the finest Darjeeling teas possible with absolute confidence. After 2013, I will buy Darjeeling ONLY from dealers such as yourself. It is worth the few extra cents or dollars to get the best tea and ensure that the tea workers are treated with professional respect and are afforded good benefits.” – Don Hoffman, USA.
“Some feedbacks on the teas I ordered. Most of them are good and I think some of them are really good…I am glad that you and your team are focusing on bringing higher quality Darjeeling teas…
I am very encouraged by this purchasing experience with you. I am looking forward to seeing more rare and exotic Darjeeling teas offered at a reasonable price on your website. Finding good teas at unbeatable prices is so difficult that I have not seen many vendors able to do it.
Thank you for your great work. Keep me updated. – Hua & Walker, Canada.
“Yes. Thank you! I’m very happy with the tea. Actually going to drink some of it now, perfect for early mornings. It’s great to have a place in Darjeeling to order good tea from! Thank you. — Lasse, Norway (Comments on repeat orders)

“I received a small parcel with probes Darjeeling from India! Ordered four grades..felt the smell of dried fruit. Infusion – a beautiful, orange. Taste – red tea, moderately tart, and a very clear hint of nutmeg. Nutmeg, nuts, spices – all these notes like… The first acquaintance with Indian teas was nice. This – as an Indian film. Bright, beautiful, interesting and original! I will continue to learn :-)”
