The Tea Darlings of Darjeeling

PRESENTED ON JUN 05, 2014
IN GARRISON @ VOL 6

Juliana "Topsy" Post goes through the long and hard day in the life of a Darjeeling tea leaf plucker. Most of these plantation workers are women who receive approximately $1.50 for a day's work. Yet, as Juliana noticed, the women chatter happily with each other throughout the day.

What Tea to Buy When You're a Minimalist

BY CARL SERGIO
@ AIA 2014 CONVENTION ON JUN 26, 2014

Architect Carl Sergio travels the world listening to U2, channeling George Carlin and carrying a small backpack. He suggests everyone should try the challenge of breaking all of your belongings down, and only keeping 100 things. He is very indecisive when it comes to what kind of tea to buy in the supermarket because there are just too many choices.

Let's Fall In Love With Tea

BY RATNA SOMANTRI
@ VOL 18 ON JUN 24, 2014

Ratna Somantri's first encounter with tea was from her mother, who always serve tea to the family. During her time at Le Cordon Bleu, Sydney, she continues to learn about tea from all over the world. She established Tea Lovers Community with some other fellow tea lovers in Indonesia. Currently, she is also the Chairman of the Tea Board of Promotion of Indonesia for 2014-2017. Ratna often invited as a speaker in various tea-related events and enjoyed teaching classes through tea at Tea Institute. In her presentations, Ratna shared her knowledge about tea history in the world and in Indonesia in particular. Indonesia is one of the largest tea producing country, but the awareness for the tea culture itself is still low. Through her community, Ratna believes that Indonesian teas should be more appreciated in our own country. Her dream is that our best teas should be available and enjoyed in every Indonesian home and that their growing popularity will prosper local tea producers.
