PLANTATION HISTORY OF BEAUTIFUL GUDALUR AREA - SOUTH INDIA

Plantation History of beautiful GUDALUR area :-(South india)
The coffee was first introduced in south India at the close of 18th century by Arab traders but the Coffee plantations started in the area in massive scale by British companies and pioneer European planters, In 1828 the coffee introduced in Wayanad and about 1850 the estates are extended to Nilgiri-Wayanad and Devala, Pandalur and Cherambadi were turned to large planting centers, during this time may European planters settled in Nilgiris and Wayanad to establish plantations but coffee plantation doesn’t succeeded as expected and many alternatives crops were tried.
In 1870s Cinchona was introduced but the price of Quinine gone down tremendously due to over production of cinchona in other part of the world hence the cinchona boom faded out with in a short span and the Gold boom in Nilgiri-Waynad resulted close to extinction of these plantations.
The ambitious British administration and traders introduced many other crops in this region to utilize the rich soil. In 1884-1889 the Glendrock Company did an experimental cultivation of Remie or Reha fiber plant (AKA China Grass), around 400 acres in the forest slops of Glendrock valley. The soil and climate was very suitable to the cultivation of Remie crops as the stems obtain desired growth in the rainfall months without irrigation, even though the company has to pay more for drying and spinning the fiber. The plantation was given up due to poor profitability and high production cost.
Tea plant was introduced on the Nilgiris as early as 1833 and later the plants where tried in Nilgiri-Wayanad. Remarkable contributions are done by many European planters to establish estates in the area , D.H.McLeod and Henry Atzenwiler are few among them , McLeod was born in an English planters family at Richmond estate in Pandalur, and they where believed to be one of the first English Planters in the area, Henry Atzenwiler was a Swiss born planter with full of ambitions and dedication, in early days Mclead and and Henry joined together to develop plantations around pandalur. The gold boom in the area had a negative impact on agro industry. McLeod and his family left Pandalur and they established an estate in Poomala near Sulthan bathery. The place was named after his birthplace that is Richmond in Pandalur which is called as Poomala by the local people. Meanwhile Henry settled in Cottanaad Estate and became one of the pioneer planter in Waynad area, he died on 6th May 1912 and buried at Cherangode village near Pandalur.

百年老欉佛手

百年老欉佛手

Fou Shou from eco-friendly tea estate in Yong Chuen, Fijian. Trees are older than 100 years, growing in the wild nature
The dried leaves give a rich woody with the touch of floral aroma.

The 1st infusion was a total surprise by its profound astringent taste that immediately stimulated the sour reaction on both side glands and brought a very strong and everlasting sweetness on the tip of tongue.
The taste of 2nd infusion was even more stronger. We added on some water ⋯⋯to dilute the astringent taste, but the after taste stayed strong and long.

Changed strategy started from the 3rd infusion, to shorten the infusion time to matter of second. It helped to reduce the astringent taste, but there was no effect to weaken the after taste. Now could sense the sweetness not only on the tip of tongue, but also sense it only lips.

Followed the infusion method, can trace the memorized aroma from the dried leaves. The taste and aroma of started to tell the 2nd part of story with total different tones and notes.

After 6 infusions, we decided to have a bit of home made moon cake and cookies. The mild astringent emerged nicely with sweet desserts.

We finally decided to close the tasting, because the time is late. We were amazed by the after taste of this extraordinary memory today.

長於福建永春山中一處荒野中的百年老欉佛手. 茶樹齡已逾百年, 周遭被密密的樹叢包圍. 

在溫熱的茶碗中, 茶散發出一股濃濃的木香與遠處的優雅花香. 

第一道的茶香與口感給了我們一個很大的驚喜. 一反通常第一道中茶香通常是漸漸甦醒, 口感由淡雅漸漸轉升, 而這款茶的第一道沖泡的茶香與口感就有如一個迎面直拳, 直擊舌根與兩側, 在想法子分析那一股似苦卻又甘的口感的時候, 很快兩側腮腺因受刺激生津的速度與力道而給品者直接帶來另一層驚喜. 然而就在驚喜尚未落下來之前, 那內斂的澀感立刻轉成甘甜傳送到舌尖. 

一如所臆, 第二道口感比第一道更明顯與強烈. 在初淺品茗一杯後, 我加入一些熱水來稀釋第二道的茶湯, 就算是稀釋之後, 那一股澀後生甘的口感依然強烈, 

有鑒於此茶力道很強, 所以自第三道後改變沖泡戰略, 把沖泡的時間縮到數秒. 澀後而生甘的口感不再侷限在舌尖, 甚至唇上亦有感. 在更改沖泡戰略後, 第四道的茶香跟乾茶開始類似. 跟前兩道比較, 第四道好像是一本書中的第二章, 給品者另一種風情與驚喜. 

在品過六泡後, 我們決定停下來享受前幾日自己做的五仁月餅與麥片餅乾. 嘴中尚存的微澀完全溶入甜點. 
當大家心滿意足地互道晚安時, 我們在感受到那持續的茶香澀甘與回憶時期待下一回合.

THE WILD TRUTH OF TEA

PLEASE READ IT WITH YOUR OWN DISCRETION

The Wild Truth of Tea - Chapter two: Tea & Health
Tea as Medicine
Because of its well-known health benefits, more and more people are choosing to drink tea, but unfortunately, they aren’t choosing the correct way to drink it. Tea just started to get popular in recent years. I worry that ten years from now, tea drinkers may be experiencing negative health impacts rather than benefits.

I’m not going to talk about chemicals and other harmful things related to tea growing, as you probably got the general idea from the first chapter about the tea business. Instead, I am now going to talk about how the method of drinking tea can either make you healthy or make you sick, depending on how you go about it.
In ancient Chinese medicine, there is a very important theory:“上公治未病, 中工治已病, 下工治末病。” “If a doctor can make sure you are always healthy, and before you get sick he has already treated the illness, this type of doctor is the best;If the doctor cannot tell before you get sick, but can heal you when you get sick, this is the middle level doctor;If the doctor can only treat you when you already have a terrible disease, this is the worst type of doctor.”
....
Following me, the book will coming out soon! wink emoticon

THE BEST TEA

The Chinese have a wise saying: “The best teas are grown in high mountains,” and of course this is true. At high elevations, the air is cool and crisp and misty clouds constantly curl around the high peaks, protecting tea plants from glaring sunlight and washing humidity over the leaves. In the ambient cold temperatures, new leaf buds form slowly and develop higher levels of essential oils and amino acids such as L-theanine, and more L-theanine means sweeter teas. and we The Gopaldhara Tea Estate is one of the highest plantations in Darjeeling region. that stretches from 3500 ft to 7000 ft. Established in 1881 since then we have been making exquisite teas for our worldwide clientele. *_*

Does Oolong tea get any better?

PU-ERH BRIEF INTRODUCTION

Pu-erh tea is made from Yunnan large-leaf varietal of Camellia Sinensis.

It is typically processed into compressed cakes, bricks and tuos. Pu-erh is particularly special because it can be aged for decades or longer, always changing and (in most cases) developing more depth and texture. 

Raw Pu-erh (生茶) is the traditional form of Pu-erh, and is sun-dried and compressed. Ripe Pu-erh (熟茶) is fermented during a 40-50 day period under-going a mellowing process that changes the tea into something dark red-brown in color.

一 杯 濃 茶,八 味 人 生



第一味:愛心,凡事包容,諸事忍讓。
第二味:虛心,謙虛為人,低調做事。
第三味:誠心,將心比心,廣結善緣。
第四味:清心,尋找心靈的和諧平靜。
第五味:信心,保持積極心態的力量。
第六味:專心,使人生更能提高效率。
第七味:耐心,機會總在等待中出現。
第八味:寬心,學會選擇,懂得放棄品味人生的滋味,就如同一杯濃濃的茶。

少年,初識愁滋味的季節,成長的歲月,浸透了淡淡的苦澀;
青年,一段如火如荼的季節,亮麗的青春總有那麼幾抹灰色;
中年,閱歷不少人生的坎坷,趨向成熟的歲月,雙肩扛起沉重的負擔;
老年,飽嚐歲月的風霜雨雪,懷念已逝的青春韶華,難免會有些許的酸澀。

人生,不正如那一杯捧在手裡的茶嗎?或許唯有,那天真無邪的童年,才如同一掬的清泉吧 !
人生之旅,是一段磨練人性的心路歷程。把真誠與執著,揮灑在人生之路上、浸泡進,人生這杯茶裡,人生的苦澀,何嘗不是滿口的清香呢?

這八味,陪伴著我們走完,只有起點沒有終點的人生當中,每一種滋味,皆缺一不可!
