Selim Hill Tea Garden
Dorje Teas is based out of the heritage Selim Hill Tea Garden in Darjeeling, est. 1871.
Located at 4000 ft above sea level, Selim Hill Tea Garden is one of the 87 tea gardens of Darjeeling. It was first planted by the Englishman Henry Selim in 1871, and it borders the town of Kurseong.
Spanning over 1,000 acres, half of the garden area is covered by the Selim Hill Forest, which is home to hundreds of different species of birds, including the great Indian hornbill, animals like leopards, barking deers, and elephants, and different species of spiders and snakes.
The spiritual life of the forest is captured in Selim Hill’s teas.
Selim Hill’s products are 100% organic.
It is certified by the USDA Organic, as well as the Rainforest Alliance for its commitment to the environment and sustainability.
We pluck, pack and dispatch directly from the heritage factory at Selim Hill. Here's a picture of Second Chance House where we stay. To keep up with the latest about the daily life at Selim Hill Tea Estate, you can follow us on our social media handles or subscribe to our newsletter and keep abreast with our blogs!
We work with the Selim Hill Collective which was created by the trustees of the tea estate, under the Chairmanship of Mr. Rajah Banerjee. The purpose of the Collective is to re-imagine the space of the tea estate, by moving away from the model of commercially exploited plantations to that of an inclusive and naturally holistic garden.
