Welcome to new members – Aug. 24,2016

IMG_4791ITCC was again present at the Hong Kong International Tea Fair, held August 11-13. We were pleased to see so many members stop by the ITCC booth as well as at the 2nd annual Cup Warming event on the second day of the fair. The event was well attended, with standing room only soon after it began. A separate review of that event is forthcoming however, at this time, we would like to welcome several new members who joined at the HK fair. On behalf of all the ITCC members around the world, we extend our welcome to:

Sabrina Mok - Hong Kong
Amy Tin - Hong Kong
Jacky (Ming Yue) Xiu - Xing Guo Yi Xiang Yuan Tea Industry Co. - China
Rishab Jain - Crometan Exports - India

I look forward to learning more about each of our new members and sharing our knowledge and passion for appreciating tea. To get in direct contact with any of our members, simply let me know and I'll connect you.

Gold for Silver

dokesilverneedleby Rajiv Lochan

Winning a gold in RIO was not as important as winning in O-Cha tea festival tea competition in Shizuoka two days back when both activities happened by a coincidence at the same time. Doke Silver Tips from Bihar made it to the gold category in the Indian section and we were so mirthful as this has been a featured tea in our ITCC shows worldwide.

Inside is always important in the long run but outside is also important was proved by Chitose Sashida of Tea Garden, Japan, who packed it so well for the judges to not to miss the tea since it was from the land of Buddha and an Indian Tea Board declared non-traditional tea growing area which is geographically just below the joint of Darjeeling & Nepal high altitude flavour junction so aptly called Kanchenjunga teas.

The citations will be presented in O-Cha Tea Expo in October last and we will personally be present there which will be immediately after ITCC Xiamen event where we will feature it again to the attending crowd.
