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!
This activity will begin with a 30 min drive from Munnar town to reach Lockhart Tea Factory. Make your own tea (program) will include tea plantation walk, (minimum of 02 hours) picking tea leaves along with the local tea picking ladies, witnessing the weighing process, lunch at estate bungalow or in club depending on availability (veg, non-veg cooked by local butler). After lunch, you will process the tea you have collected in one of the oldest factories in this region which still operates in the orthodox process of tea making. You will get a chance to work in the factory for about an hour and conclude the program with exclusive tea tasting.
