I regularly drink a large-leaf tea called "Kalami" or "Kalmi" tea, also marked "Gulabi" tea. It seems to be a fairly low-grade Indian tea mostly for domestic consumption, definitely not a first-flush thing. It comes into the country from a lot of different companies, like "Tea India" and "Scheherazade."
What IS this stuff? Where does it come from? The quality is quite variable, but the better and fresher batches usually have a good clean floral or peach smell to them, and it's inexpensive enough to take a gamble and pitch the stuff that is not.
Is "Kalami" a place or a thing or what? What am I drinking here? --scott
