The “Temi Tea” is popular among the tea lovers around the world. This is produced in the Temi Tea Garden in Sikkim which is the only tea garden here. It is perhaps one of the best tea gardens of the world.
The Temi Tea Garden was established in the year 1969 by the government of Sikkim. The best quality tea produced here is the Temi Tea and the next quality is known by the name “Sikkim Solja” which is followed by “Mystique” and “Kanchenjunga Tea”.
The tea estate has also adopted the organic method of tea production instead of the conventional method. This has made the estate to be called as the ‘organic garden’. Since this project was completed recently, the estate has started exporting organic tea in small quantities only to a few countries.
Interestingly, the Temi tea also holds the privilage of having got the highest bid at the Kolkata Tea Auction. If you are a tea lover, this is a place you shouldn’t miss paying a visit to!
