Meet ITCC member Forest Zhang

IMG_0833Hi, I’m Forest Zhang.

I first started drinking tea by the influence of my parents and elder people when I was a kid. They drank tea and shared with me. So, I grew up drinking tea. I mainly like red tea (black tea) and Chinese Oolong tea. I also sometimes enjoy Pu Er tea and other kinds of good tasting tea of quality which is safe for myself and Chinese customers.

I am a guy from Xiamen working at XIAMEN GREATWALL CORP., with foods export experience of 23 years worldwide. I have been involved in the tea trading business for over 10 years personally and start importing tea from Sri Lanka and other countries to China, in our own brand “TESTER”.

I wish to communicate with tea lovers worldwide, for tea enjoyment and for tea business. I welcome other ITCC members to contact me at zhang.lin@xmgrt.com. Thanks.

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.
