About Me

My father was a tea connoisseur and so I grew up drinking the finest Indian tea.

I remember going tea shopping with him in Calcutta as a kid and it was a big ritual. The shops used to have large wooden boxes with various teas coming from Darjeeling and Assam and my father will ask, “ Dada, what’s the finest you got this time? Make me a blend.”

Upcoming workshop

Appreciation is the 1st Step to understand, identify and brew a fine or specialty Tea. It’s also the process to fall in love with the art and science of what makes a fine tea, that teaches you how to use our 5 Senses to admire and appreciate this wonderful beverage.

With growing demand and love for this very special beverage globally, I invite you to join this 60 min workshop and learn about these arts & science with some of India’s finest teas that may cost more than a bottle of Champagne. Besides learning something new and fun, I promise you this workshop will change the way you look at this beloved beverage.

Tea Tourism

Tea Tourism or Indian Tea Trail as I call it, is not just about travelling to a tea garden, visiting a factory and doing some tea tasting. Indian Tea Trail is more of an exploration of senses through experiences that, perhaps, has the potential to change your life…

As I embarked on my journey to find and understand the finest tea that the world knows and loves – Darjeeling, little did I know that this will be a never-ending love story in my life….

From Tea tasting at Glendale Tea estates, a 150+ year old Tea factory to riding the world famous UNESCO Certified Nilgiri Mountain Railway to staying at charming and cozy Tea Nest, Tea Resort, which used to be a Tea School back in time, this episode takes you on an amazing journey as we get on our feet exploring what best Coonoor has to offer.
