• Blinddate

    First of all, Blinddate is a house for blind women and their children in Nepal. It is a living and working space, where high quality organic tea componets are mixed into diverse and uniquely flavoured creations. Going there is a blind date, a fanciful encounter for everyone’s taste!

    In Nepal, blind and visually impaired women are frequently homeless and live in due to a lack of social facilities and cultural norms that propagate gender inequalities. These blind women are offered the opportunity to work as taste-testers and mixers of different tea varieties. Their creations, “Blind-blends” are of high quality and outstanding flavour. They are individually and hand-produced.

    The house and tea workshop are located in the eastern part of the Himalayan region next to the world-famous Darjeeling agricultural fields. All of the tea components are obtained from small, local farmer cooperative. Blinddate teas are marketed and sold by established partner corporations.

    Blind people are equipped with a strong ability to perceive taste and smell. This ability can be leveraged to create a valuable and productive place for the community in tea society, while also generating self-confidence within the visually-impaired population.

    Additionally, Blinddate is providing courses on sensory awareness and sustainable environment protection for tourists in the Himalaya region. This benefits of this cultural exchange, between blind and non-blind people, creates an interactive environment.

    Blinddate is a small place on the roof of the world, where blind sense and individual tea design aligns with unique social experience.
