Eco Park Tea

CMD Andrew Yule Mr Sushil Munshi handing over a packet of
Eco Park Tea to me at Hidco Bhavan

Last week, Mr Sushil Munshi, CMD of Andrew Yule handed over a packet of Eco Park Tea to me at Hidco Bhavan.

A 3-acre plot of land was developed as a tea garden at Eco Park. It has taken a good shape now. Andrew Yule has partnered with Hidco in giving technical guidance and maintaining it. Saplings and earth was brought in by Andrew Yule while gardening and workers were provided by Hidco. A nearby exquisitely beautiful Tea Lounge - designed by Dulal Mukherjee and Associates and built by Engineering wing of Hidco - is also being run by Andrew Yule as a Tea Lounge. The Tea Lounge is used by Andrew Yule on the basis of a rental agreement with Hidco.

Now tea from the tea garden of Eco Park has been hand rolled and processed as ready-to-use tea bags. I too tasted a cup and seemed ok though a bit strong to my taste. I will now use the pack to serve Eco Park tea to the officers at my weekly meetings of Hidco (every Tuesday) and NKDA (every Thursday).

CMD Andrew Yule and I discussed the possibilities of having a small demonstration tea production unit or a Tea Museum at the Eco Park Tea Garden.
