Arvind thinks the Tamenglong is lousy. Of course too polite to say just that, but I could tell. Specifically too smoky. Which I agree. It was a blind test.
When I told him what it was, he thought it was like Cachar tea. Derisively called “kachra”. I told him he “knows” too much about tea. We don’t need the Indian Tea Board to determine what Tamenglong is like.
But his export experience and his knowledge of tea will be useful. Just gotta teach him about Manipur tea, that’s all.
