Halloween is a time of scary things that go bump in the night and for magic that seems to be everywhere – even in a tea garden. Our visit to the Doke Tea garden in Bihar, India, is proof. Come along with us and see that magic in action and meet the magicians who bring it about.
We first tried tea from Doke several years ago. They were a young garden and feeling their way. We tried to give them accurate feedback on the samples they sent us, and we took our role in the process quite seriously. Frankly, at first, the teas left a lot to be desired. Over the years, though, as the tea plants matured and the tea magicians at Doke honed their magic spells…uh, skills, the tea has become a favorite.
A Visit to Where the Magic Happens
Halfway around the world from us is where the magic happens. Click on each photo to see the details:
Can you see the face in the liquid?
Stare hard and you will see a face appear:
Doke Tea is grown and processed at the Doke garden in Bihar, India, the birthplace of Buddha. They work long hours under some rather harsh conditions, tending the plants, harvesting the leaves, and turning those leaves (by use of their magic and skill) into that elixir we have come to love. The perfect tea for your Halloween tea time or indeed any tea time.
Taste the magic!
