Darjeeling Tea Garden: A Treat for Chaivinists #SuperBloggerChallenge #InstaCuppa

Featured post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

The word “Darjeeling” itself chills your spine to remind its legacy and pride. It echoes in our heart and mind, every single moment we witness the word being pronounced. But why so much of hype? Well, the answer lies in the heart of every tea lover who genuinely adores the scenes of Darjeeling Tea Garden. The aroma of Darjeeling orthodox tea proves itself as a tough competition for an alluring damsel. Its production has given birth to over seventy eight tea estates in the hills. The statistics seem quite overwhelming as more than fifty percent of the population are engaged in this aromatic production Sounds cool, right?

Did you know that Tea plantations in Darjeeling are only allowed to residents of the sub-divisions of Darjeeling and Kurseong? I visited a couple of tea gardens but two of them made me spellbound. One is Orange Valley tea Garden whereas the another is named Rangeet Valley tea Garden. The scenes in tea garden can only be well appreciated if you can find enthusiasm in monotony. For some it is just full of tea leaf and nothing else. On the other hand, some souls rediscover their strengths and weaknesses in such calm and serene places. But neither of these happened with me, because I am not from Earth. I was busy getting clicked, posing like a monkey (almost), acting like I am gonna launch the next DDLJ season without KJo, bla bla bla.

Orange Valley Tea Estate: An unstoppable delight

Orange Valley Tea Estate is a bio-organic tea estate, situated on the top of mystic mountains of Darjeeling. It promises you with one of the most high quality and unique flavoured tea which is naturally processed. Optimum soil conditions and fine bushes ensure supreme quality of teas being produced. The estate has always been under a strict supervision of Board of Directors. The pluckers have a clear knowledge regarding quality manufacturing culture. Personalized management by experienced skilled workers made it possible for a well-maintained tea estate like this. The fresh air didn’t blow me away, rather it made me gluttonous for savouring the breeze of life.

Rangeet Valley Tea Estate: Where silence plays the magic

Rangeet valley tea garden is basically known for its ropeway which serves a panoramic view of Darjeeling Tea Garden. Though we couldn’t witness it in a working condition yet, we took a detailed tour of the entire tea estate until I sat with a packet of Lays. A light trek through the beautiful lush laden paths giving us the utmost aromatic sensation was worth it. We saw localites plucking tea leaves while singing a Nepali song. It is a blessing in true form. Thus, there’s where our Mother Goddess lies: “Prakriti“.

Golden Tips Tea: A treat for tea lovers

Established in 1933 in India, where a tea enthusiast can discover the finest teas of the world are grown with a motto to showcase the art of drinking gourmet teas, Golden Tips is among the oldest & most popular brand from India, originating from Darjeeling. Connoisseurs & tea lovers cherish this brand, across the globe for its impeccable quality of teas. 

We found it out after having our dinner at Glenary’s. I was very excited for shopping here, being a tea lover. I found the prices, way too high but there’s absolutely no compromise in smell and taste. Hence, we bought Oolong tea, Darjeeling black tea and much more.

I would love to recommend this very store to every individual who fights for having tea, or argues for it or even considers tea as life. Whatever the criteria is, being in Darjeeling, you can never miss Golden Tips Tea to add some sone pe suhaga.
