"Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else" Lush green tea estates in Munnar as far as the eye can see
Footloose Backpackers
Our third day was characterized by lazy morning and hot shower. We took a demo tour for tea preparation in the Lock Hart Factory. The tour guide (Mr. Ashok) briefed us about the three different kinds of tea manufactured in their factory- Black tea, Lemon tea and White tea, the latter being the best. The factory is not in the best shape but still one can get a chance to see the old machines working like new. The small cafeteria offers delicious Egg puffs and Samosas along with beverages (obviously tea). The location is apt for photography but the road that leads to the place is horrible. It was very difficult to drive on the mud patches and cross the numerous potholes.**Demo tour ticket: 150 INR / person
