Quality loose leaf vendors in Hyderabad, India

Postby Teja » Jun 29th, '11, 04:42

Not sure if this is the best section but here goes...

I'm currently on vacation at the moment visiting family/friends/relatives in India. I will primarily be in Hyderabad. Given my love for tea, I figured it would be a good idea to check out some vendors in the area for loose leaf tea.

As much as I'd love to head up to Assam or Darjeeling for authentic vendors, I simply don't have the time or resources.

Anyone know of quality loose leaf vendors in Hyderabad? Please keep recommendations within the city itself. Traffic makes it a nightmare to go anywhere within the city (let alone outside the city).

teja,
i am sorry i don't have any suggestions for you but as you're on a tea adventure, bringing alone a camera and posting your photographs i know will widen my tea horizons.
good luck, i do hope someone replies with helpful information.

Rdl,

Thanks for the reply. Since I'm not exactly visiting tea gardens, there wouldn't be a whole lot to photograph. :P

However, if I get a recommendations for great shops to visit and there is something noteworthy to photograph, I'll be sure to take some and post em.

That being said, I'm still interested in recommendations. :) I've tried Googling for shops, but received mostly all listings and no reviews. And none of the stores seem to have a website so it's hard to determine if the shops even sell loose leaf tea (let alone quality tea)

Thanks!
Teja

I've never been to India but, I've been to a tea capital in Japan and I noticed that tea stores AWAY from Uji sell matcha and teas at a much cheaper price.
so my advice is to check the market places and buy something on the high end side.
MAYBE something good will be there.

i did a quick google search and the Finjaan Tea Shop & Lounge in Hyderabad did get an interesting review. i understand that you won't be in the tea fields, but the urban tea shop/vendor is also interesting to see.
- enjoy.
