Hey Gtea, welcome aboard! What do you do, what do you drive/ride? C'mon man, tell us a bit more about yourself!

Rehaan, Aizawl is the capital of Mizoram man! Don't you remember high school geography?!

Welcome to TBHP!

Its good to see people logging on from the the North East as well! I remember we had a member from Sikkim who was quite active for a while but was last heard driving to Calcutta for Palio spares....he was quite fun!

Tell us about the motor scene there...I've heard about some fanatical bikers out there but I'm sure there is more. How are the roads - I'm sure you have some fantastic drives through mountains. DO post pictures.

As for TBHP being addictive, be warned that it can take over your life

Look forward to hearing from you and do get more of your motoring friends to join up!

Hey thank u all for the warm welcome. I'll post pics as soon as i have the time.

The guys love their bikes here. They r crazy in love with their bikes.
Sometimes i go out n race with them. But the roads are very twisty that it gets scary sometimes.

Will take pics of races this side and post them as soon as I can.

Pekoe, Orange Pekoe, Broken Orange Pekoe, Orthodox Leaf, CTC leaf, CTC dust, Orthodox Dust...that is as far as form goes.

Then you have Assam, Darjeeling and South Indian teas as far as varieties go in India. Of course you have Ceylon and Chinese teas, and they have their own varieties as well. Kenya produces good tea too and then most of the Far East countries have their own varieties....Malaysia, Indonesia and most recently Vietnam.

Within each variety you have different flavours depending on the bush, terrain, water...this is why certain estates have a premium label. Most of the premium Indian teas are not available in India.

Then you have the first flush, second flush, blah blah blah.

If you like the flavoured variety you have the so-called aerosol teas like Earl Grey, Jasmine tea, Gunpowder Green, Herbal Infusions like Camomile, Lemon, Raspberry, Strawberry....

As you can see, there's more to the TBHP cuppa than just wheels....enjoy!

Cars and teas! an unstable combination if a steaming hot cup happens to land on your lap while driving LoL. We get quiet a few customers for RD350 Spares from the North East(or at least that was the case when i used to help out at the shop a few years ago).
