Tea quality controller Adona James

Can anyone drink one hundred cups of tea every day? Not everybody, but Adona James surely can. Hailing from Wayanad, an abode of tea estates, she is the only female tea taster in Idukki. Adona works as a tea quality controller at the Harrisons Malayalam Limited.

The tea leaves say it all

Tea tasting, according to seasoned tea tasters, is an art that has the credible backing of science. The color, aroma and taste of the tea depend up on the physical or geographical conditions of the place where the tea plantations are grown. The incredible palettes of the tasters can even recognize the level of oxidation or the bitterness of tea leaves. The ‘fate’ of those tea leaves is ‘sealed’ once the tea taster gives them a quality certificate. It is the job of a tea taster to sample and recognize the different flavors and brand them accordingly.

Pamper your taste buds

“Your taste buds should always be active so spicy food loaded with masala is a big no. Teeth should be cleaned frequently to keep the mouth always fresh,” says Adona.

Adona completed her bachelors degree in BSc (Food Science and Quality Control) before pursuing an MBA in Quality Management. She has been a tea taster and quality controller at Harrisons Malayalam Limited for the past 4 years.
