NEW! We are delighted to announce the arrival of our limited-edition First Flush Darjeeling for 2019, now available exclusively at Fortnum’s. Hailing from the historic Badamtam Estate, where high altitude and cool Himalayan winds produce a superbly aromatic blend, this highly-prized tea is made using leaves which are only in their peak for seven to ten days of the year, making it extremely rare and of exceptional quality. #Darjeeling#TimeForTea#LimitedEdition#FortnumsTea#Fortnums | FortnumAndMason.com
Jos joku löytää kirppareita, ullakoitaan, kellareitaan kiertäessä tai missä tahansa jotain vastaavan tyylisiä kahvikuppeja asetteineen ja ehkä myös leipälautasineen niin otan mielelläni vastaan. Yksittäis kappaleita siis, ei settejä tai edes paria 🤗
Tämä kuppi asetteineen löytyi Hämeenlinnan Fidasta 1,50€ yht.
In the hilly regions of Darjeeling lemon 🍋 finds its use in the most unique ways. I grew up in a household where lemon was the be-all-and-end-all for all the problems that life threw your way. In this blog post I uncover 3 quirky ways lemon is used in our mountain homes.
WE REMEMBER: Havildar Hangpan Dada, AC(P)
On 27 May in 2016 Havildar Hangpan Dada, singlehandedly killed 3 terrorists and laid down his life in a fierce 24 hr encounter at 12,500 ft in Naugam, J&K. Tragically he was martyred after succumbing to his injuries.
A grateful Nation conferred upon him #AshokChakra , India's Highest Bravery Award.
A High Mountain Warfare Institute situated at Jalapahar, #Darjeeling has been named after him.
While others may forget WE REMEMBER!! #theDC#theDarjChron #thedarjeelingchronicle
내 #스콘 너무 좋아해주는 @h.mh.k 만나기로 하면 매번 스콘을 준비하고 있는데, 놀러오기로 해서 전날 반죽을 하는데 버터가 부족한거야! 맛없진 않을까 걱정했는데 느무 맛있게 먹어줬다! (갓 구워져 나왔으니 맛있을수밖에 없긴 했다만은ㅋㅋ)
오픈할 시기를 놓쳐서(?) 언제 따나 고민중이었던 와인도 마시고~ 카프레제랑, 견과류 듬뿍 올려 구운 브리치즈도. 간단하게(?) 스콘이랑 카프레제랑 치즈 먹자 했는데 넘나 배불러짐ㅋㅋ #scone#icetea#darjeeling
The RKSP Model School, completed in 2017 in Darjeeling. A government school (swipe right to see the initial site images) for 2000 students in 0.5acre plot of land. The final look, the design was highly appreciated by the government of Darjeeling. Owning to the terrain and climate , it is extremely difficult to execute projects in the hills. Stay tuned for the site sections.

"See how boring the tea leaves look!" exclaims my father holding a couple of leaves from the Darjeeling tea garden we've halted at. I'm unable to get down from the car as my 2-year-old has just fallen asleep in my arms after an hour-long wailing and tantrums. I'll probably have to give the spectacular views of the famous, sprawling Darjeeling tea garden a pass. "I got these for you to see how ordinary they look! You see, you aren't really missing anything..." he continues to cheer me up.
And I nod in an agreement (although I liked the tea leaves) smiling to myself, wondering how parenthood never ends.
Editing a little out of my comfort zone. This sunrise point in Sittong has the most amazing sunrise but unfortunately the rainy season is upon us now and we did not have a clear day but nevertheless we did have a very moody scene.
Let’s shoot your elopement here ... bookings open 💃
It's another bank holiday weekend and I'm enjoying a cup of Darjeeling First Flush tea from @teasup_teashop this afternoon. ☕ Often called the "Champagne of Indian Tea", this particular Darjeeling has a wonderful complexity: its flavours concentrated during the harsh Himalayan winters which reduce the moisture in the leaf and create lovely aromatic flavours in the tea. 🌱 These leaves were collected during the first week of the season and retain exquisite character and flavour. Focussing on ethical trade and eco-friendly packaging, as well as producing some of the finest teas I have tasted, Teasup is a new company that I whole-heartedly support and recommend. More to follow soon!
Here’s to waking up to the most beautiful and satisfying view. I have used this quite a few time now ,’that waking up to this’ but trust me I have actually lived that moment. Never been a nature person. I was very neutral but Darjeeling made me fall for it. It’s always refreshing to take some time off and visit hills. North East you are beautiful.
P.S: having a cup of tea with this view was probably the best part. I literally felt like I and my dearest chai had the sweetest moments ✨🙈
