How long have you been into tea? Since 2014
What got your started with tea? My first job posting was at Darjeeling. My neighbour introduced me to Darjeeling tea. He taught me the basic nuances of tasting, the process of brewing, differences in gardens and so much more. I got to understand the process of tea making from the grassroots. And since then, Darjeeling tea is my love.
How do you store your tea? In air-tight wooden containers, separate from any other thing with strong odour.
What is your favorite way to drink tea? The western method. 120ml hot water over 2-3 gms of loose-leaf, for 3-4 mins. However, all the numbers vary depending on the type of tea and garden.
Do you also drink coffee? Yes.
What is the perfect setting for drinking tea? In my home in Darjeeling, I have a small window by my bed. I can see a few beautiful green Himalayan peaks. It’s about sunset, the weather is getting chilly. That’s the perfect time to wrap my fingers around the warm cup and spend some quality time with myself.
How many cups of tea do you drink in a day? 7-10 cups
