ACADEMY EXTRAS: Teas, Talks, and Tastings

Meet The Producer: An evening with Indi Khanna, owner of the revolutionary Tea Studio in India’s Nilgiri Hills

Tuesday 20th August
6.30pm-8.30pm

Tea has been a passion and an integral part of Indi Khanna’s life for the last 45 years. He has hands-on experience in every single aspect of tea, from the tea nursery and field cultivation to manufacture and blending, and in the international trade. He has been an innovative force in the Nilgiri Hills where he has been producing artisanal teas for many years, and all his learning and experience has now been encapsulated into his dream project – The Tea Studio.

This unique, modern, state-of-the-art tea factory, which sits surrounded by smallholder tea fields near the hill station of Coonoor, produces a range of small-batch, carefully-crafted white, green, oolong and black teas for the speciality market. The factory works on the principle of paying growers and pickers a much higher price for fine-plucked tea shoots, and produces exceptional teas that fetch higher prices in the world market, thus benefiting everyone involved.

Come and listen to Indi explain his work and taste some of his high quality teas. The evening will include the following:

- an introduction to Indi Khanna’s work in India

- an overview of the challenges and current situation of tea growing and production in the Nilgiri Hills

- the philosophy and aims behind Tea Studio

- the challenges faced by the Tea Studio

- the Tea Studio team and its investors

- the work of the Tea Studio and the development of its range of teas

- Indi’s daughter Muskan, who manages the all-female team of factory workers, and was recently named Woman Innovator of the Year for her Nilgiri Bamboo tea that is made at the Tea Studio

Tea Studio teas will be served throughout the evening.
