Sharad Subba is a tea maker from Jasbire. When asked about his views on tea, he says that tea is his life. He really cannot imagine a life without it.
He established Jasbire Processing Center with twenty years of experience as an employee of another tea factory in Ilam.
The decision to open a tea factory in Jasbire was a personal one. Under someone else’s leadership Subba felt constricted with logistical issues.
We don’t make tea, nature does that herself. Our only job is to identify them.
As a young boy, Sharad’s journey started as a tea plucker. He slowly but steadily climbed the ladder jumping from one factory to another. What did it mean when they pushed a cup of brew to the side? What did it mean when they said some teas tasted sweeter than others? Sharad thought to himself.
Now he has two young tea makers under his wing. He wants to grow the Jasbire name as much as he can to hopefully hand things over to his young son. He believes his practice of tea to be the art of tea but he wants his son to teach him the science behind it.
