Afghan Tea Quest

One constant feature of Afghan hospitality is tea. And damned fine tea it is. Afghanistan is a player in the tea market, as they consume so much. Others have noted how the Afghans make and drink it.

I seem to remember only one brand of tea advertised - Alokozay Tea. Alokozay is a UAE based outfit that seems to have saturated the Afghan market (even if they might have to do a little tweaking of their advertising).

I cannot find any and it is driving me up the wall. The nice fellow who runs the Namaste Plaza location near where I work has sold me some excellent Indian loose tea, but says I'd have to try a Middle Eastern oriented (no pun intended) grocery to find Alokozay Tea.

Argh!

Alokozay Tea is fine quality. On my stay in Dubai I bought some after finding out that it is actually produced by Afghan company in UAE. Seems they have spend alot of money on adverts in Dubai. I have some in London if you guys need some give us a shout..

Hello, I live in Canada and I drink Alokozay Premium Green Tea. I have a lot of different kinds of green tea, because I am on a conquest to weight loss. I have Tetley Naturally Decaffeinated, and although I like it, I choose Alokozay over it because it has more benefits that the decaf takes out.

Overall, this tea is great and tastes great. I don't know where my family gets it though... I didn't even know it was good quality tea, until I did some researching.

I haven't tasted their tea but I heard that it is quite great. Probably if I have an opportunity I will give it a try.
