Ravishing tea plantations in Munnar. Munnar, India
The hill station of Munnar in the Indian state of Kerala, is synonymous with rolling hills that are carpeted with verdant plantations of tea – a delicious beverage loved worldwide. The town became a hotspot for tea plantations after John Daniel Munro, a colonial officer of the British Raj, first visited the place in the late 1870s. He discovered that much of Munnar’s land was suitable for growing tea and coffee. Today, the hill station is recognized for some of the best and most beautiful tea gardens across the globe.
Tea in Munnar is grown on its undulating terrain, which appear as they are covered with a bright green blanket. The entire place has amazing scenery and offers a panoramic view of the majestic Western Ghats. An ideal place to immerse yourself in your favourite novel while enjoying a warm cup of tea!
