Ranit Bhuyan (PK Bhuyan)

Ranit Bhuyan is the son of a tea planter from Assam.

His late Father was P.K. (Naga ) Bhuyan.  Naga was his nick name. 

He went dressed as a Naga for a Club fancy dress event. The name stuck.  I was also known as Naga Jr. by oldtimers. 

I was entirely educated by James Finlay Tea Company. St Paul's School Darjeeling and St Xaviers College Calcutta.

Grandson of a tea pioneer who was a member of ‘International Tea Committee' in the 1950's.

Traces his ancestry to Maniram Dewan, a native nobleman in Assam who informed Robert Bruce that the Singhpo tribe grew tea. Bruce opened up the doors of Assam tea to the world.

Grandson of Dr. S.K. Bhuyan who was awarded a double Doctorate from School of Oriental & African Studies, University of London; and Ranit is thus a history buff.

Founding member of The London Tea History Association. Made the ‘London Tea Walk' with Malcolm Ferris-Lay, which started the ball rolling on the tea plaque  project.

Currently a Sales Manager for an international printing company from the Middle East.

Note from Editor - Ranit is one of the most energetic and inspiring people I know. His passion for tea and the tea industry is unbeliveable. He is leading the quest for installing tea plaques in London to commemorate the history of tea. Ranit is writing a book on The History of Tea. He has already helped several Koi-Hai members with their questions. His knowledge of NE India and the tea industry is extensive.
