Steinthal is the oldest tea garden in Darjeeling with a super-rich history of the world’s most loved beverage and its plantation. The Steinthal Tea Estates, spread over 1,662 acres on a steep slope and some areas, were developed by a German missionary- Father Steinthal. This land, leased from the Sikkim king by the East India Co in 1935 for Rs 3,000 and the bunglow at Steinthal was opened in 1862.
The surroundings of the estate will leave you spellbound, especially during the descent to the bottom of the garden, where the River Rungeet flows to meet Teesta. Picturesque views of the garden and the hills are present in the every turn of the 8km stretch inside the tea garden.
The estate’s colonial era bungalow, the residence to generations of tea planters, is now refurbished as a resort. All its suits have an age-old charm, with high wooden ceilings and teak-wood flooring. The resort offers pure vegetarian organic food.
From countless cups of freshly brewed Darjeeling tea to sitting beside a cosy fireplace, listening to all the sounds that Mother Nature offers far away from the city, a tea estate is perfect if you want a lazy weekend getaway.
Steinthal Tea Resort offer 4 suit rooms: Victoria’s Peak, Steinthal Suite, Singtom Suite, and Himalayan Suite. The rooms have spacious and well turned out bathrooms with running hot water, a cozy atmosphere and modern sanitary amenities.
