Bangladesh is a small country. There are some unimaginable beautiful places all over the country. I am extremely lucky to see some of them. Kazi & Kazi Tea Estate is one of them. At first I couldn't believe that there is an organic tea garden which is well organized, decorated with all modern faculties, has the impressions of aristocracy, is running across a large area. The tea of Kazi & Kazi produced in its own garden, free from chemical, fertilizers and pesticides. They are the pioneer of organic tea plantation and produce high-quality organic tea. There are also cattle farm, orange garden, neem garden, vegetable garden, fish pond etc. They are making sweets with their own produce cow's milk. Cow dung is being used in tea gardens as fertilizer. Neem water is being used to control insects in the tree garden. Everything is natural.
Kazi & Kazi Tea Estate is located in a village called Raushanpur in Tetulia upazila of Panchagarh district. It has been producing tea since 2006. At present, the company is exporting tea to America, Germany, China and Japan. They have various types of tea including Black Tea, Green Tea, Green Lemongrass Tea, Tulsi Tea, Ginger Tea, Jasmine Tea, Bengal Breakfast Tea, Ulang Tea. The distance of Kazi T Estate from the city is approximately 55 kilometers. As soon as you enter through the beautiful gate, a dark entrance in the shade of herbs is waiting for you on the right hand side. When you come to the end of that path lost in the greenery all around you, some of the most beautiful cottages built in a modern style will catch your eyes. This private cottage / bunglow is very luxuries. You will be fascinated by such a beautiful cottage in the crowd of trees. There is a lake inside, a few cottages next to it and a bridge in the middle of the lake to cross it. From bridges to walkways, lakes, restrooms, wooden cottages, you will find a clear impression of nobility and aesthetics. You will see some horses in the open field eating grass.

About our journey 

We visited the Rangpur division because of some official work. We cover Gaibandha, Dinajpur, Thakurgaon and Panchagarh district. 4th December night we came here and 5th December we visited Kazi & Kazi, Banglabandha Zero Point and Tetulia Daak Bungalow. All credit goes to my dear colleague Md Mustafezur Rahman Rony for taking the permission to go inside Kazi & Kazi.


How to go

Kazi & Kazi Tea Estate is a private property and you cannot visit without permission. However, there are other small tea gardens and lot's of other places to see which I mention as a list below.

The distance from Dhaka to Panchagarh is about 456 km and from Panchagarh to Tentulia is 40 km. Panchagarh can be reached by road or rail from anywhere in the country. You can go there directly from different districts including Dhaka, Chittagong, Sylhet. You can also go Tetulia from Dhaka. Buses of various transport companies like Hanif, Shyamoli, Babul Paribahan goes there.

Where to Stay

There is no place to stay in Tetulia. You have to stay in Panchagarh. You can hire a private car or CNG to visit tetulia. However, with prior permission, you can spend the night at Tentulia Dak Bungalow or in the District Commissioner Bungalow. There are several good residential hotels and rest houses in Panchagarh district town for overnight stay. There are two types of rooms, AC and non-AC. The rent is relatively low under 300 to 1500 tk depending on the season.
