A warm ginger-glazed breeze. Tea being poured into porcelain cups. The pitter-patter of the sporadic rain. A sliver of chilly sunlight playing on your face. This is how most mornings commence at a tea plantation.
From light aromas to dark, flavoursome brews, the following collection of tea estates dotted all across India, over the evergreen Nilgiris and the towering Himalayas are exquisite experiences in themselves. Decked with centuries-old bungalows and modern minimalist homes, these plantations need to be explored by every soul who loves to travel just as much as he loves his steaming cuppa.
