Darjeeling Tea Garden, India – Magical, Exotic, Mystical.
Our journey started in Melbourne (Australia) and took us to Kolkata and Assam (India), to look for a supplier of fine teas that met our expectation and standards. When we went to Makaibari tea gardens, we knew this was the supplier we wanted to work with – their farming methods, quality products, sustainability, focus on the environment, fair-trade and social responsibility.
‘It’s easy to see why they are so internationally acclaimed’. We were impressed by the ancient science behind the tea, that is still used to this date. A walk through these tea gardens was so breathtaking and peaceful. Tea here is growing in a harmonious biodynamic way, combined with permaculture farming practices, creating harmony with soil, plants, animals and humans.
