The sun rises with birds chirping and in the distance, one hears the pleasant hum of women talking as they walk through the narrow passages between the lush bushes of tea.
That’s how morning dawns in the 177 hectares of the Temi Tea garden in southern Sikkim. This is where the world’s finest tea begins its journey. It is the story of Temi brewed in the quaint Himalayan Kingdom when the last King of Sikkim converted 440 acres of his kingdom’s land into a tea plantation.
