Seeking Vintage India Tea

by ali.r.quliyev » Jan 3rd 20 6:11 pm

Good day Dears,

The reason I'm writing this post - I'm seeking for Vintage India teas produced at 1970-1980s and saved till nowadays.
I guess maybe anyone could help me with searching or can advise me how I can find it.

Thank you all in advance.

Dear Bridgette,

Actually I'm looking for Aged Teas - kept from 1970-1980s.
For example, there are items of Puer aged teas (https://www.ebay.com/itm/222081532253).

But I can't find any of India sorts. Maybe anyone could help or advise me.

Thanks in advance.

Haha, whoops!

We don't have different forums for specific countries, but we do have boards for tea varieties, found here.

Generally speaking, Indian teas do not age in the same way the puerh does. If you did find an older one it would be quite stale.

good observation, since they are different plant. Indian tea the plant is bush, PuEr is a tree
