Has anyone bought form them before? They mention it is from Goomtee estate, which I know ot be a recommended garden in darjeeling, Their ebay listing has all the official symbols as far as the darjeeling tea's go and the organic certification What do you guys think I wasn't sure if their price seemed a bit low for 4oz of organic first flush from goomtee
I am located in Chciago, if anyone knows of a store that sells first flush darjeeling I'd be happy to know of its whereabouts thanks for all the info

It does seem a little cheap for what they claim it to be. I'm sure it is from Goomtee estate, and it says "top grade" but you could always ask them what grade it is. Indian teas are all graded on their wacky system, so perhaps find out what the exact grade is. Possible that it's not really "top grade".

Hello, I purchased Darjeeling FTGFOP1 Steinthal in the TEAGSCHWENDNER shop on Halsted on my visit to Chicago in October. It is delicious. They are located in Lincoln Park. Shen

I don't see why you shouldn't try it. It's not shockingly cheap - our first flush teas start at $6-$8.
They could sell it cheap because of inventory reasons - first flush tea ages and they may want to get rid of it in advance of the coming first flush picking.

Just realized I DID buy from them a couple of months ago - Ali Shan Ooolong. It arrived quickly and was is a good quality tea. Actually, it was a bargain. Good luck. Shen

It's a nice tea but it is one these Darjeelings that has been getting greener and greener over the years. I had for years until early last year I finally decided that it doesn't have anymore what I like in a black Darjeeling.
