Flush : 1st Flush 2017
Location : Doke
Doke is the name of a very productive organic tea Garden in India. The lush garden rests in an area called Pothia, Kishanganj. The area is very poor, with high unemployment and a lot of civil unrest. In 1998 Mr. Rajiv Lochan, a lifelong tea garden manager and now tea business expert, decided to plant new tea bushes on small plot of land. Many said that the land was 'useless', but Rajiv persisted, with the help of the garden workers and local farmers the garden began to surprise everyone, including Rajiv.
This hand-rolled green tea is made up of beautiful, fluffy green leaves. The liquor is slightly earthy with notes of cherry and citrus zest.
