Temi Bungalow in Moon Lit Night

The Beautiful moon lit night at Temi Bunglow did evoke emotions which defied words.
The sky was utter cerulean adorned with stars and from time to time the misty clouds were kissing the moon playing hide and seek.

The sense of disbelief as to how nature could be so much in its beauteous best did turn the evening into a long night of friendship bonding and fun banters that renounced life”s imprisonments.

“Laughing with moon mother,
Were we mingling with constellations or
Reflections?
Surely we were dreaming.

“The stars in the sky
Nature fireworks set to fly
The groups there bearing high

Amazing & absolute in the happiness that flowed “.

While the lookout deck at Temi necked itself into the hollows of the mountains below – the Bunglow stood in all It’s glory

—with the scattered lamps lit in its own poetry while the makeshift dancing floor had a huddle of ladies & gents doing the moves to a Spanish number. The Guitar played our favourite tunes
sporting Cliff Richard”s runes.

The Bunglow was alive with the lively chatters .
It stood as a Majestic portrait of a Sikkimese legacy ..
Watching The Night sky in the Wooden hallway
We Thought That We Saw An Angel Resting,
Lying Exhausted There In That Craft

Life of a Plucker at Temi

The best quality teas around the world are all harvested by hand to guarantee that the leaf is whole, undamaged, and that only the top two leaves and a bud are picked. On every quality tea estate there are hundreds or even thousands of tea harvesters, that we call as Tea pluckers. The pluckers have a goal each day and they are awarded a bonus if they exceed it, so there is a benefit to efficient work. So how does a typical day look like, for a tea plucker? Here’s this. A rooster wakes them up. Before leaving for work, the handful of leaves into their boiling water makes their favourite liquor. They march to pluck the leaves and to meet their coworkers with sunrise. The day passes for them with one goal in their mind, to pluck the quality leaves  and spread the flavours of tea far and wide.
