With a dynamic drift towards urbanization, it is hard to imagine the artisanal small tea growers not being able to handover this living legacy to their successors. This shift might most certainly lead to shortages of skilled tea artisans and an aging population. Will there be a fraction of population interested in tea cultivation anymore? To re-enliven the glory of this art and make tea making attractive, the creative side needs to be explored for appealing to the interests of the present and future generation to continue this legacy.
Aiming at reaching towards the larger goal, we are working towards developing a new line of experimental teas. Every tea season or flush the club shall be curated and hosted by one grower who will present one experimental run of the limitedly produced batch of tea. This would not yield any economic benefits to the grower, however this is an encouragement and an appreciation of what they are trying to accomplish. This lot is not contended at what they have, they want to go out and do more and need a tiny bit of support to make them realize it.
As it is produced at a very limited quantity of not more than 4-5kgs, it won't be available in our shop teas section. The members can order this tea via/ from this section. Also, orders would be accepted until stocks last. Grower of the next season or flush will be declared in advance and orders would be accepted by 15th of every month. The club members will receive 50-75 grams of finely crafted single origin teas created by these progressive small tea growers. Every sip will take you to a beautiful intuitive journey to a tea garden.
*The monthly club will be commencing soon from the first flush 2020.
