At the farthest reaches of India and Nepal, in Darjeeling, Rajah Banerjee, the owner of a family tea establishment was the first one to dedicate himself to organic agriculture and fair trade, though he produces one of the most sought-after teas in the world. He is a charismatic figure who sees growing tea as a true way of life. He roams his otherworldly gardens on horseback and elegantly makes us think about the possible harmony between man and nature.
