Jiti

 

Jiti lies in a serene valley bordering the foothills of the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. This garden falls under Jalpaiguri District of West Bengal.

The sister garden of Hope lies along the southern border, while the northern border runs parallel to the international border with Bhutan. The Ghatia River runs along the eastern border while the Jiti River flows along with western side. The nearest railway station and post office is Nagrakata which is 13 KM away. The nearest airport, Bagdogra, is 75 KM from Jiti.

Jiti which signifies one of the best quality marks of Dooars is the only garden in Dooars geographically located in a valley. This unique location at the base of the Bhutan foothills results in excessive rainfall and lower temperature for the most part of the year as compared with the rest of Dooars.

Jiti Tea Garden was founded in the year 1878 as a part of Hope Tea Garden. The factory of the garden came into being in 1885; before that the green leaf was transferred to the Hope factory. The Hope Tea Company of Duncan Brothers owned the Garden, before it came under the Goodricke fold. The name of Jiti is synonymous with quality largely due to continuous excellent work done by our predecessors over the years.
