About Happy Earth Tea

Happy Earth Tea is a tea company founded in 2011 by Niraj Lama and Mary Boland. Niraj Lama is from the Darjeeling region of India, and formerly ran Darjeeling Tea Exclusive, a company based in India which sold teas.

Happy Earth Tea carries a selection of teas from the world, but still shows a clear focus on Darjeeling teas, especially those that are organic certified. The company sells single-harvest teas, which tend to have limited availability--once one year's selection sells out, one must wait for the next year's harvest to come into stock before buying again.

Picture of Himalayan Shilla, Jun Chiyabari (Organic) Summer 2014

Muscatel and plum scent, and the plum comes out with absolute loveliness in the liquor—sweet, and just slightly astringent. Additional sips bring out a blossoming plum and grape richness, that quickly gives way to a cooling tart astringency. Every sip is filled with juicy-ripe fruit. A beautiful tea, and easily an eq...

Picture of Arya Ruby, Darjeeling Black Tea, Second Flush 2014, Organic

Arya Ruby offers a rich aroma of fermenting fruit—grapes, apples, apricots. The first taste of the liquor is smooth, slightly sweet, and seemingly little else. But then notes of tangy fruit and a slightly drying astringency begin to develop on the back of the tongue, which, it seems, signals the real development of f...

Oct. 22nd, 2014

This tea brewed to a cloudy copper tone, and smelled richly of honey, chocolate, and earthy spice—cinnamon, or allspice, or the peppery side of cardamom. It smelled as if it would be oily, in the way of a full-bodied Scotch, but also syrupy and sweet.

The mouthfeel is smooth, but on the watery side compared to th...

Picture of Puttabong, Darjeeling First Flush 2014.

This tea brewed an amber colored liquor and immediately gave off a strong punch of apricots, trailed by a musky honey scent. The first taste—still too hot—yielded an indistinct malt-floral taste. Later after allowing to cool further, the liquor still seemed mild and subdued, and so with a third sip, I vigorously ae...

Picture of Singbulli, Darjeeling Black Tea, First Flush 2014

This was a very light brew with a bright golden color, and it smelled immediately of mint and other subtle floral and green fragrances. The sense of mint carried into the taste and mouthfeel, and it was never earthy or grassy. Later in the cup, I noticed a bit of the scent of asparagus. It was a really soft, beautiful ...
