This company definitely got my attention when I checked out its offerings. It's encouraging to see artisan teas being produced in the Himalayan region outside of just Darjeeling; I have unfortunately only tried a small number of teas from these regions but so far, relative to the number of Darjeelings I've sampled, but I have been impressed and I hope these areas continue to gain prominence in the coming years.
