I like drinking Chinese tea but I have never tasted Indian tea before. I hope I will drink some Indian tea in the coming days.

Both are good. But I am more familiar with Chinese tea and enjoy exploring different types of it.

Novy said

Just like me.

I prefer Chinese oolong and green tea. But in terms of black tea, Indian Darjeeling and Assam are also good choices.

I also heard about some kind of tea called Dark Tea and White Tea, do you know something about them?

1) This is a false dichotomy.

2) Absurdly vague question. Both countries produce lots of excellent tea and lots of crap tea.

I’d choose a cup of EX invoice Goomtee First Flush Darjeeling over 99.99% of Chinese teas.

But I’d also take a cup of Hojo’s $3/gram Special Tribute Keemun over 99.99% of Indian teas.

Just dawned on me, since a couple of these vague ‘China v India/rest of world’ questions are popping up by users with new accounts, I wonder if China is supporting the Ghorka strike that is decimating Darjeeling tea industry? What a low blow that would be.

That question are really hard for me. I never think about it. What I do was just drink tea,

I personally love Chinese teas but cannot resist a good fruity Indian blend. Although I honestly never had Indian teas with milk and sugar before.

Hard to make the final decision.

Not really I’d take my Greens and Oolongs over Indian tea any day.
