Yatra Tea Company: 2018 Sales and Promotions

Edited 9/17:

Free Shipping on offer through Thursday September 20 at Yatra Tea Company (https://www.yatrateacompany.com). No code needed, applies to any order. A saving of $3.99 on domestic orders in the US. If you’re ordering from abroad, this amount will be deducted from your total – message us for details on how to facilitate an order from overseas.

So the recurring question I get asked online, through our website, and on IG is for recommendations. A number of people associate Indian teas with just black tea offerings, so they’re curious about the other types we offer which explains the recurring question. I’m a “try before you buy” person, and so my answer almost always is to try the 2018 sampler (https://www.yatrateacompany.com/shop/yatra-2018-sampler) and 2017 sampler (https://www.yatrateacompany.com/shop/yatra-2017-sampler). They won’t break the bank, give you more than a taste of each tea we carry, and ensure you won’t be left with too much of a tea that doesn’t suit your palate.

For folks who have tried our teas/know what they want, our full-size selections from Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiris, the Dooars, and Nepal are very reasonably priced for the quality and quantity we offer. This is true for both our 2018 (https://www.yatrateacompany.com/shop/?category=2018) and 2017 selections (https://www.yatrateacompany.com/shop/?category=2017).

Our selection may be small compared to other vendors of Indian/Nepali teas, but rest assured they are carefully curated with an emphasis on quality and value. Give us a shot, you will not be disappointed!

Thanks for reading. Have a great week. And do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

Thinking of placing two orders. I have never tried any teas from Nepal so this would be first on my list. As for the Darjeelings, which would you recommend? You know my preferences for Darjeeling tea.

Hey – personally, I love the Sakhira from Nepal, so much so that I’ve requested the producer to make me something similar this spring. Hoping that materialises!

Given your preference for later invoice Spring Darjeelings, go for the Thurbo (DJ 39). I personally like the DJ 5 Goomtee, but I like the early invoice Darjeelings even though I find them more finicky. Whichever you order, I’ll send you a sample of the other.

Thanks – keen to hear what you think of the teas!

OK. Placed my order for the Sakhira and Thurbo.

Thanks for giving us a try! Given your in depth knowledge of Spring Darjeelings, I’m curious to hear your thoughts on the Thurbo. Hopefully you will also enjoy your first foray into the world of Nepali teas through the Sakhira!

Teas are on their way!

The First Flush Thurbo Estate, 2017 Darjeeling was very good.

Hits all the flavor notes of a Spring Flush Darjeeling. Good balance of flavor and astringency. Just a little light on depth and body. It’s a Spring Flush Darjeeling, so the depth and body may not be a concern. The taste is good and the tea is all the better with the low cost. Yes, depending on preferences, you can buy a better Darjeeling. The thing is marginal gains. Would you be willing to pay more than 3 times the price to get that last ounce of body and depth?

The teas come packaged in ziplock Mylar bas and the customer support is very good. Lots of other retailers offer Darjeeling teas. I especially like retailers trying to up their game by really reaching out and listening to customer comments.

I am not employed by Yatra. I am not a fake customer. I am a real consumer enjoying the taste of the Yatra teas. I can go on and on write a clinical analysis but I won’t.

Give their teas a try.

Many thanks for the kind words. One thing I have discovered is how much I like interacting with people over the topic of tea.

I am glad you enjoyed the Thurbo! And I hope you give us the opportunity to send you more tea in the future!

Curious as to why this thread keeps getting bumped with no new replies.

In an effort to maintain just one dedicated thread for my company’s sales and promotions, I edit the main body of the thread on a weekly basis, or whenever I offer a new promotion. If you scroll up you will notice an edit date. Every time I edit the thread gets bumped up.

This way I do not flood the forum with a new thread every week.

Aha! I thought I was going crazy. :)

YatraTeaCo said

:) no, just the opposite, you’re quite observant.

I think there may have been a discussion at the very start of the year about companies promoting their teas. I was guilty of multiple threads in 2017 and figured just one dedicated thread updated on a weekly basis would suffice.

I think the site is much cleaner now, except for the spam every now and then…
