Customers loving 2015 Makaibari

CIMG0130We have some die-hard fans of Makaibari.  They check our website daily to see if the new harvest is in.  They write us e-mails asking when the air freight is arriving.  They pre-order.  This year it seems we are receiving even more praise for Makaibari than in years past.  Here are two comments:

Hello Anupa, the flavor is so exquisite and unique this year on the first flush, that it reminds me of the very first one I had up in the Himalayas at Makaibari on my trip.  Is it just the lot you sent or is it the whole crop this year that is so exceptional?

I received my tea order this morning and cupped it.  I have to say the quality of this year’s Makaibari Estate 2nd flush is exquisite.  I opened the bag and was immediately struck by the complexity of the dry leaf and the amount of silver tips.  It is difficult for me to describe the various subtle notes.  Let it suffice to say this is a sophisticated tea which has more notes than a symphony orchestra.  It is one of the better Makaibari 2nd flush teas I can remember.  One of the many complex notes I am picking up on is reminiscent of an Assam Golden Tips tea I once experienced, a hint of honey?  Does that make any sense? 

We agree – this year’s crop continues to amaze us.  I select the very best lots for air freight.  The 1st flush is DJ 36/15 and the 2nd flush is DJ 196/15.  We are always ready to share provenance on our teas – it provides authenticity and you know you’re getting the real thing.  Keep your comments coming and enjoy Makaibari – drink the best!  All Makaibari teas are certified Organic, Biodynamic and Fair Trade.

Tea – Good for your Heart

The Harvard Medical School has added their voice in lauding the benefits of Tea. In a recent edition of their Harvard Heart Letter, they reiterated our mantra-  “Drink tea if you enjoy it, in moderation, and not because you’re taking it as a medicine”.  Exactly.  They pointed out that it improves vascular activity and lowers blood pressure and harmful cholesterol.  They further cautioned against tea extracts and sugary bottled tea.  Here’s our advice – Stay with Tea in its simplest loose leaf form and make sure it’s Black, Green, Oolong or White.


More Comments on Breakfast

We’re enjoying all the Comments received about our new Breakfast service. Some need answers so here they are:

Could use a few more selections, perhaps Quiche?  Yes.  We’re definitely looking into this.

I chose a tea from the regular menu.  I prefer Organic from India:  Just to let you know that both the Assam and Darjeeling on the Breakfast Tea are from India & Organic.

Need more black tea options – English Breakfast & Earl Grey:  We thought Organic Assam could serve as a hearty Breakfast tea and we do have Blue Flower Earl Grey as one of the selections.  We will move it over to the Flavored Tea category so you could find it more easily.

Keep them coming!  We enjoy hearing from you.

Our Sandwich Platter
Our Sandwich Platter

Here are some appreciative words from a customer who ordered our Green Platter – this is our Sandwich & Scones offering – as well as Salad & Iced Tea:

Everything was 100% amazing! Thank you, thank you and thank you again. Every single thing, from the sandwiches to the amazing tea to the completely awe inspiring scones . . . Right to your delivery staff (who were wonderful). It was a huge relief to just be able to call you and 1, 2, 3, everything was done and I had nothing to worry about.

I just washed out your tea container and the two glass bowls. I’ll run them over tomorrow.  Please be sure to thank everyone on your staff. You all really outdid yourselves!

Although we don’t quite have the capability of Delivery, this was right down the street so we were able to oblige.  Thanks for the kind words!
