Keeping up with life at Selim Hill Tea Garden!

DISPATCHES FROM DARJEELING #1

Dear Tea Club Member,

We hope that you have had a joyful, and more importantly safe, Durga Pujo. We are currently delivering our Second Flush Teas and if you have any feedback for us, feel free to write to me at sparsh@dorjeteas.com. If you have enjoyed your first two harvests, do consider writing a review on our website by clicking on the link here.

In the meantime, here's what's been happening at our farms. We would like to provide you a window into life at Selim Hill Tea Garden, where your teas are carefully plucked, and manufactured by us. 

In our Second Flush delivery, we have sent to you a special postcard that was designed after an encounter by our team with a leopard just minutes away from our heritage tea factory. Below you will find the original photograph and the postcard we have sent.

Here’s what’s been happening at Selim Hill:

  1. Last week, we saw torrential rainfall through the week, which led to landslides in many parts of Darjeeling and within our farms. We wrote about it in a blog on our website, discussing immediate attention that is needed for improving soil health. With your support, we have been planting trees, to counter the impact of climate change.

  2. For the more health, conscious, here’s an important article about the health benefits of Green Tea - or as we would like to call our organic Green Teas: Magical Mystical Himalayan Herbs. -

  3. As Monsoon is over, we can see the sun again. Here’s the view from Second Chance House at Selim Hill Tea Garden.

  4. Finally, as the new James Bond movie came out recently, here’s a fun post that was created by our team to document 007’s love for Darjeeling Tea.

In case you missed it, for Episode 5 of Echoes, we had hosted the renowned Food Critic, Vir Sanghvi for a special Tea Tasting session. You can find the link to the session below. We shall be coming back with Season 2 of Echoes very soon. In case you have any recommendations for who you would like us to invite for it, please let us know!


ARTS & CULTURE

In these newsletters, we would like to go beyond merely discussing tea, and throwing discount offers at you. So here’s one of our favourite paintings. This was made by the Russian artist Nicholas Roerich, who spent a lot of time in Darjeeling, painting the Himalayas. Very often, just before Sunset, from our Tea Factory, we are able to witness a very similar view.

Here’s a beautiful post curated by the Alipore Post about Darjeeling’s First Flush Tea. You can check out their newsletter here. We cannot recommend it enough!
