Temi Tea Garden

Temi Tea Garden is the only Tea Estate in the state of Sikkim. The garden is just 18 km from Ravangla and can be visited on a day tour from Ravangla. The garden is spread on a slope below Tendong along the highway to West Sikkim from Gangtok.

Temi Tea Garden was established in 1969. The total area of the Temi Tea garden is approximately 435 acres. The garden employs about 450 people and produces 100 matric ton of orthodox tea annually. The garden produces some of the best tea in the world. The original tea saplings were brought from Darjeeling and the produce of the garden are not very different from what one can expect from the gardens of Darjeeling hills. The garden offers beautiful natural views. The picturesque view of tea plucking can be seen here during the plucking season. The factory can be visited to have an interesting lesson on tea processing.

Temi tea is also a common souvenir for tourists visiting the state. Most of the tea produced in the garden is either consumed locally or purchased by tourists. The garden is owned by Sikkim government and it produces organic tea, avoiding use of chemical fertilizer and pesticides.

Visiting the Garden

A night spent in a old British built bungalow situated just below the Temi Tea Garden could be a bewildering experience of connecting the past to the present. There is also a tourist accommodation that has come up in the vicinity. A visit to the garden, enroute to the Tendong Hill, could be a rewarding experience. Many tourists pass through the garden and stop over on their way from Gangtok to West Sikkim.
