Knowing more about tea helps you enjoy it more. You can learn the best way, for example, to steep green tea so that you don’t get any bitterness. No need to go overboard with it, but feel free to learn as much as makes sense for you.

4 Reasons to Weigh and Measure Out Your Tea Leaves Before Steeping

In an age of instant this and microwaveable that, weighing and measuring your tea leaves before steeping can seem like more fuss and bother than it’s worth. But I can give you 4 reasons to the contrary: Continue reading 4 Reasons to Weigh and Measure Out Your Tea Leaves Before Steeping

Rajiv Lochan, Doke Tea Garden Messenger

Being the messenger of Doke has become the purpose of my life now. Resettlement of those aboriginals who had the allotment of these lands where the new tea is flushing under the government declaration of non-traditional tea growing area in 1999 June is an important corporate social responsibility. Growing and manufacturing tea with the new found water in this parched area of Bihar is a boon and establishment of a new university and an agricultural college in the vicinity of Doke is a great opportunity to establish tea tourism facilities there to integrate on this twenty-year-old project.

Neha’s presence there gives an edge over these activities, being a young lady entrepreneur whom the present government is encouraging very much. Vivek’s marketing and my international support thru the G3 tea diplomacy movement and the encouraging responses in Japan through Chitose San where the almost similar wako 茶 has given the instant acceptability as duck tea.

My recent trip to America, which was mainly to propagate tea diplomacy and make tea in different places next being Hawaii, and my interactions with different tea growers and tea scholars of different universities and our earlier China trip for the integration of their advanced tea research inputs made me so excited about the future of Tea in America – both North and South. Destiny has been bringing in many tea travelers from these lands to us and we see a very bright future for Doke.

At Vegas I spoke on Tea diplomacy, and in New York I spoke to Indian tea board chairman who will initiate the process of world Tea Festival to be held in Darjeeling in Feb 2018 on tea diplomacy lines.

Now, I am preparing for Sept 2017 international tea forum to be held in Enshi in China to take the cause of Tea diplomacy with Professor Wang Xufeng.

As the Doke Tea Garden Messenger, I am very busy indeed!

Why the Difference Between Oxidation and Fermentation Matters

Having recently seen yet another article on oxidation versus fermentation as those terms related to the processing of tea leaves, we thought that not only should we repeat here the essential parts of our previous articles about those terms but also why the difference even matters. A lot of hair-splitting goes on in the tea world, such as how to spell pu-erh (with some insisting we should use “puer” or “pu’er” despite the negative impact on SEO and the total ho-hum response from our customers), but in this case, a whole wig is being split, and with good reason.
