Prime Minister Modi gifted Darjeeling Tea to Queen Elizabeth. What about you?

Are you looking for a gift for a loved one?

Throughout the year, for different reasons and different seasons, we show our love through gifts. However, it is time to rethink the idea of gifting – Our gifts should reflect out thoughtfulness and mindfulness.

The colour pink of the tree calms and excites you at the same time. The message is strong – you can love others only if you love yourself. In the present circumstances when giant companies are handing out pink slips in large numbers, the tree is a reminder that tomorrow is another day and flowers will bloom again for those who conserve and adapt.
Drink a cup of Dorje Teas and be in the pink of health!

The tea that is made at Selim Hill uses NO FERTILISERS and NO PESTICIDES. It is organic and chemical free. As I drink my cup of Second Flush Dorje Tea with NO MILK and NO SUGAR, my belief is re-affirmed that true wealth is good health!

It was then time for a long walk before sunset. Day turned into dusk and conversation meandered through politics, family, friends and business (we are Marwaris you know). As night approached and the sky switched on the stars, I was content that I had spent the day well. God willing, we will keep the Sunday sacred at Second Chance House in Selim Hill Tea Estate.

These direct descendants of the dinosaur are a constant reminder that adaptability is the only way to survive. As I wake up and pour my cup of Dorje Second Flush Tea, I love hearing the rooster crowing. I do believe in the saying, don’t count your chickens before they hatch. However, I also believe, if the rooster is crowing, night must be changing into day!

Of course, the grass used to make the pandals, bamboo, is the most important grass in Darjeeling. It is the tallest and fastest growing grass which is needed from birth to death. The child’s cradle is built with it, the house that he lives in and then his last transport is also made of bamboo. It provides shade and food. The bamboo stem is used to make the flute. It fills our life with music in more ways than one.

The name Daisy literally means ‘Day’s eye’. It blossoms at the first sight of dawn and sleeps when the sun goes down. The yellow and white heads seem to greet and meet every passer-by. Bright and cheerful in appearance, they grow randomly all over the mountainside almost as if someone has taken the trouble to strew our paths with flowers.

While travelling on the road, we are in a capsule, where human interaction with strangers does not happen. The moving car, though, is like a movie screen. The vehicles are the characters of this viewing platform. The fun part is that is a DIY kind of story. You are at liberty to decide the plot, the beginning and the end.

All our hard work was rewarded when we saw different celebrities opening the hamper. With great pride, we saw Dorje Teas inside the Filmfare hamper.

My first meeting with this creature was its loud, noisy greeting at Second Chance House which caught me off guard. Unaccustomed to the ways of nature, my senses had no way of finding out what was making the noise. It seemed like someone had put up multiple, invisible speakers. It was my curiosity that introduced me to the age old and permanent residents of Selim Hill Tea Estate – the Cicadas.

Pradip answered my query and informed me that bees had built their house between the wooden ceiling of the porch and the wooden floor of the jutting out upper deck. Pine wood being a favourite for bees to build a hive in, they seemed to have found the perfect place. The greatest folly of human beings is to meddle and try to make things better. I was no different.

A lot is hidden inside tea bags because they know no one is going to open the tea bag. It has tiny pieces of tea leaves and even tea dust which is the residue of tea production. In reality, you have no clue of what you are actually drinking.

With Whole Leaf Tea, you can see the whole unbroken leaf, feel it with your fingers, smell the aroma of the tea leaves and then the ultimate taste, of course. It is a complete experience of the tea that you have bought and most importantly, you know exactly what you are drinking.

The rhythmic ocean and the motionless mountains may be paradoxical. However, there is no difference in the peace that pervades your heart when you are in the vicinity of the ocean or the mountain. It is almost as if someone has taken you off the racing track. Both the ocean and the mountain act as a spa for the soul. They cleanse you of negativity.

The painting ‘Morning of Darjeeling, from the series, India and Southeast Asia, by Yoshida Hiroshi, 1931’ was chosen for many different reasons.

It captures the beauty of Darjeeling in an exquisite manner. The surreal and pristine beauty of the Kanchenjunga is set against the roll of the hills. The trees stand silently and watch the lives of the people living in the quaint houses.

Be remembered with every sip of your Dorje Teas gift!
