The first ever Darjeeling Tea ‘Garden Outlet’ was inaugurated at Okayti Tea Estate, Mirik, Darjeeling. The said outlet is located at the main gate of Okayti Tea Estate, 8th Mile, Rishi Road. A few kilometers from Mirik Bazar on the way to Sukhia Pokhari via State Highway 12, the outlet will showcase the finest and freshest teas of Okayti Tea Estate. On the same day, the tea estate known for producing some of the finest Darjeeling teas also inaugurated another store in Darjeeling town. In order to offer garden-fresh Darjeeling teas to the sommeliers, Okayti last year launched a fresh website with a range of premium products, designed, harvested, and manufactured within the estate. For over a century, the company is known for its sublime orthodox blends with a nuanced tapestry of aroma and flavour. The outlet will showcase its premium teas freshly made in the nearby factory while the store will offer the choicest of batches. Management confirmed that exclusive tours of the factory and the estate will be organised for those who want to know their tea more intimately.

Tea sommeliers globally await the seasonal, orthodox, and white teas from Darjeeling. All of those blends freshly made in the heritage factory of Okayti will be available at the outlet minutes after they are processed. “It is enigmatic to experience a cup of freshly-made Darjeeling tea, and we want to share this experience with anyone who bothers to stop at our factory outlet,” Chaubey remarked, he has been managing the garden for the last 25 years
