Unrest in Northern India is delaying the harvest, distribution and shipment of Darjeelings.? It is not clear how this will ultimately affect the quality and timing of this years crop.? “Most of the production has not been dispatched. There’s a stockpile inside the factory and it’s almost crammed up. And if this? continues for some more time, there will be huge cancellation of our advanced orders…” says Owner, Makaibari Tea Estate, Rajah Banerjee.
We are discussing the issue with our suppliers and looking for suitable replacements for our Darjeelings should the saupply remain in turmoil.
? Bottom line:? Don’t expect the First Flush teas anytime soon 🙁
