Visiting Tea Tourism in India

Tucked away in India’s tippy-top nooks are soft undulating hills of great looking tea trees. They are pruned by native women clad in bright colored saris. As you steep your senses in the lush environs of carpeted tea estates, you can savor the bounties of majestic hills and snowy mountain peaks taking a peek through puffy clouds in the background. Serene and tranquil in every sense of the words, these large acres of tea plantations are home to many colonial remnants, beautiful bungalows, well maintained golf courses and a plethora of drinking holes -situated in the warmth and hospitable environs of clubs frequented by those connected with tea gardens, locals and visitors alike.

As you walk along little alleys wending their way through heavy mountain mist or trudge past Buddhist flag poles and clothes lines of quaint looking hill-homes, you realize why it did not take long for Britishers to establish their “summer capitals” in some of the most stunning locations of India. They went ahead with their act of covering the hillsides with surreal fluffy-looking blankets of dark green -which now stand tall as some of the finest tea producing regions in the world.

If you are looking for a steaming cuppa of tea, lush forests, crisp mountain air, and smooth walking trails, then book your tea tourism package to outline some of the most memorable moments of your lifetime.
