Doke is the name of a very productive organic tea garden in India. The lush garden rests in an area called Pothia, in Kishanganj. The area of the Doke Tea garden is in general very poor, with high unemployment and civil unrest. In 1998 Rajiv Lochan decided to plant new tea bushes on a small plot of land made available through the government. The government had deemed this land useless for agricultural purposes, but Rajiv persisted. With the help of the garden workers and local farmers the garden began to flourish to everyone’s surprise.

Originally used as a means of identifying knights in battle in medieval times, the Coat of Arms serves to distinguish families, corporations, and even states and nations.
The elements of the Lochan Tea coat of arms draw on symbols that are used to represent the identity of the company with accuracy and pride.
· Lion represents the strength of tea.
· Horse represents the vitality of tea.
· Eagle represents the vigour of tea.
