SESSION INFO: An Inside View of the Tea Studio Project
The Tea Studio project, in India’s Nilgiri Hills, was founded by an international group of tea professionals back in 2015 and has produced tea since 2017. In that short time, they have received attention World-wide for their innovative approach to environmental power, socio-economic development as well as their state-of-the-art artisanal tea-making. Co-founder and director, Kevin Gascoyne, gives us a video tour of the Tea Studio followed by a Q&A session to introduce this new approach to tea manufacture and how it evolved in reaction to developing markets, struggling social structures and environmental necessity. Essential learning for all tea enthusiasts. (teastudio.info)
