Just before Christmas I received a beautiful package from India (it had a bit of a tough time in the mail as evidence by the dents in the box, but the tea was safe) from my good friend Sonam of “Fresh Darjeeling Tea.”

Inside were 3 beautifully packaged fresh teas from Darjeeling — the likes of which I’ve never seen. Sonam has done a wonderful job sourcing rare and amazing Darjeelings — a quick browse through the image-slider on his homepage can show you this. He has found wonderful full-leaf oolong and pearls – teas not generally renowned in Darjeeling. His selection showed that Darjeeling will continue to be a key player in the specialty tea industry and that great strides are being made in creating superb teas.

Darjeeling Pearls – Rohini Estate:

Peculiar show of engineering, so fruity and sweet that you can imagine of a distant orchard of peach and plum, in a dream galaxy. To romance with the pearls use a glass pot to see the leaves unfurl and remind you of the days gone by.
Harvest of : October 20-2009

These pearls get me through my work week. I start in the morning and they are tightly rolled and steep my last cup around 4pm (steeping 6) and the leaves have completely unfurled. Check them out here:

  1. Wehave had the pleasure of trying the Pearls from Rohini courtesy Mr Hrishikesh Saria, the owner of Gopaldhara and Rohini Tea Gardens. Had a lingering taste. It could be infused at least four times.
    We still have the post on the pearls at our blog at

    Want to try it again.

  2. They sound wonderful!
