One of the most notable aspects of Temi Tea Garden is its surrounding natural beauty. The last King – Chogyal – of Sikkim established the tea estate at Temi over 376 hectares with elevation between 4,800 and 6,400 feet to provide employment to refugees along the Silk Route, coming down from Sikkim. He converted 440 acres of land into a sprawling tea plantation. Here in the land of towering mountains, thick pines and oak, he planted this lush stretch on the loamy soil of this gentle slope. With the magnificent view of the Kanchenjunga, the estate spreads below towards a heritage resort whose garden still houses the first two tea bushes planted by the king himself. The resort, operated by the government, is called the Temi resort.
Back in 2008, Temi Tea was certified as an Organic Tea Estate. With this outstanding recognition, Temi Tea today is famed for its tradition, history and exclusivity, around the world.
With the purpose to serve every tea drinker organic, healthy, high quality tea, we have taken an array of tea varieties to the market. Ranging from orthodox tea black and its range in green, oolong and white tea, these options are from the high elevation of Himalayas.
With major focus on sustainability, we work to protect our environment and develop our workforce to strengthen the government undertaking of Organic Sikkim. The first organic tea produce from the country, Temi Tea has achieved many milestones and has proven to be among the finest in tea. From earliest tea to now, Temi has proudly retained its legacy, character and aroma.
From Acting to Theories of Economics: The Temi Tea Sikkim 2019 Manhunt Auditions was more than just about walking the walk.
To begin with, a theme like “Building Entrepreneurship Ecosystem” for a fashion show already has an unusual ring to it. But again, to expect a fashion show to be all about seasons, is almost like expecting Temi to be only about tea. For the brand and estate, Temi, existent since 1969 has always been more than about its exclusive flavours of tea.
It has, in the past, created opportunities for tourism, supported other tea brands from Sikkim and has always mentored entrepreneurs creating an environment for sustainable business and has provided support to the varied new ventures of the state. Once again, intentioned to bring the various entrepreneurs of Sikkim to work together, The Temi Tea Sikkim 2019 worked as a vantage point for photographers, branding professionals, event managers and other professionals. The Event Head, Yougan Tamang, spoke of creating a whole fashion project hereon that will, in the future, bring many other participating entrepreneurs to the surface. A first-step to creating an industry in the future, various other creative ventures, film industry and agencies, craft bazaars, tourism can all be boosted.
More than a Fashion Audition
When the judges came together the one thing they all agreed upon was that, any man who represents the state would have be handsome inside. With over 300 registrations and 200 men making it to the venue, picking out the best few was a task for the judges as much as it was, a moment to prove themselves for the contestants. Taking the men out of their comfort zones, they were put into various make-belief situations where they’d need to act their way out. Other than that, one sang, one exhibited his taekwondo moves, another one rapped. Perhaps, not everyone was made of the model stuff, but each had something unique. Who’s in and who’s out, only depends on what the five judges would have to say. Of course, needless to say, there were the glamorous poses and shirtless ramp walks and camera poses. But all in all, what the audition really was purposed for, was to see those who were more than just meeting the physical requirements of being a model. From theories of economics to singing self-composed songs, the men had to bare their true selves. After all, it is also handsomeness that is more than skin deep.
