Meet ITCC member Jennifer Yuen

Profile Pic - Jennifer YuenTea is the most widely consumed drink in the world after water.  I am a tea lover myself, and I cannot start my day without a good cuppa!  I think my livelihood in UK along with a big tea lover daddy, has got me interests in tea.

In UK, tea is consumed daily and is perceived as one of the British cultural beverages.  Tea is consumed both at home and outside the home, such as cafes, tea house, tea rooms, etc.  Usually, many homes, cafes / tea house serve afternoon tea with cakes / biscuits on fine porcelain --- this is a very traditional British cultural stereotype.

My company – Manjushree Plantations LTD, incorporated in 1938, offers a wide range of very fine tea to cater every discerning taste, specialize in producing and markets range of exotic, speciality, health and wellness tea.  Nestled in the lush Nilgiri Hills of Southern India, Manjushree is a multi-crop producer and supplier of premium tea, coffee and spices.

Manjushree is one of the oldest producers of fine tea in India, and one of the earliest growers of coffee in the region, producing crops since 1842.  Our Red Thunder Tea (Darjeeling Oolong) has recently received an award in the Hong Kong International Tea Competition under the Oolong Tea category.

We currently has numerous branches of our Tea Lounge in India for our customers to experience these traditional tea culture, and we would like to share this exceptional tea culture with everyone in the world.  Hopefully, this wonderful tea culture and experience will become popular soon.

Terry 1Tea Culture in Hong Kong
by Terry Ma

Tea is one of the important culture in China. The Chinese emperor---Qianlong told his officer:" We cannot be without an emperor in our country, and the emperor cannot be without tea in his daily life."

I can't stop tasting tea in my life,
and I can't stop buying tea. I am a tea collector!

When I am traveling, I must buy many kinds of tea.
Because I think if we want to understand the culture of a country, drinking the tea is the fast way.

When you want to know more about your new friend,
you don’t need to learn face reading or line reading.
You can invite him to drink tea,
then you will know his character easily.

Unfortunately, although Hong Kong have many tea masters,
the young people think drinking tea is an old school activity.
They prefer to drink coffee more,

I hope in the future,
tea culture will be popular again In Hong Kong.
