I do, and we have loads in the suburbs of NYC. But I don't always know how to prepare the products unless I do homework ahead of time, which takes planning.
Re: tea that Indians drink. My Indian-American customer, who is otherwise a great cook, drinks cheap bagged tea, although she uses her own blend of chai spices. I guess she's been Americanized.
We do have many oriental markets here, and one carries about 50 loose teas and about 50 bagged teas. . I don't know how fresh they are, but I'm read to to try a small amount of something.
If i went into an Indian market, should I expect only cheap teas there?
