Make your own cup of tea

Overview

Life on a tea plantation can be a truly unique experience for many visitors in the Munnar area, notable for its excellent quality of teas. Tea plantations follow their own regimens this is not just for the different process of production but also their own particular timelines of work through the year, depending on each season. You will discover why only the women pluck the tea leaves, or why a factory will run 24/7  at the height of production time, or how after all the hard work that fragrant cup of tea is so welcome, direct from your own plantation!

Why you will love it

  • A wonderful  time spent in the tranquil environs of a tea plantation
  • Unique  experience of interacting with the  women who pluck tea and the delicate work it involves
  • Factory tour and enjoying a hand at tea tasting from experts
  • What you will experience
