A legacy of firsts
Makaibari is the first estate to be developed by the British Government to cultivate tea in India
The factory is set up
NESTLED IN THE HIMALAYAS, MAKAIBARI TEA GROWS AMIDST FORESTS, FLORA & FAUNA, AN ENDOWMENT THAT IS REVERED AND PRESERVED THROUGH TIME-FOSTERED AND COMMUNITY-LED TEA CRAFTSMANSHIP.
An ecosystem of its own
Almost everything Makaibari uses, it makes on its own, with a little help from ancient agri-wisdom from across the world.
All bio-remedies are completely natural, formulated with what is available at the estate, to not upset the delicate balance of the permaculture system.
MAKAIBARI IS ABOUT GROWING AND HARVESTING FOREST-NURTURED TEAS WITHOUT THE CONSTRAINTS OF YIELDS — VERY MUCH AS NATURE WOULD HAVE IT.
A sense of community
The philosophy of partnership over ownership guides the estate: most of the team members are born and brought up at the estate itself, which bestows an unmeasurable bond to what mother nature has wonderfully given.
A sense of community is vital for the intense spiritual union among the land, plant life and people.
MAKAIBARI IS SEEN AS LAYERS OF WORKING COMPONENTS — THE FACTORY, THE SIX-LAYERED SOIL, AND PEOPLE — WHO WORK HARMONIOUSLY TO NOURISH A LIVING ENTITY, KEEPING MAKAIBARI ALIVE.
THE OUTCOME CAN’T BE EXPRESSED IN WORDS: EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC AND MYSTICISM OF MAKAIBARI, ONE TEACUP AT A TIME.
