“A Fascinating Experience”
Review of Tea Gardens

Tea Gardens
Ranked #1 of 67 things to do in Munnar
Attraction details
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Very pleasing to the eye. Miles of slopes covered with tea plants add to the greenness of the the landscape. Also the gardens are very well maintained - giving a picture postcard like look. the Tea Museum was very interesting. A lot of things we did not know about tea processing & preparation despite drinking it for over a quarter of a century was explained by a very enthusiastic person. Suggest you also buy tea from the stall in the Tea Museum - some exciting varieties are available at very reasonable prices. When we visited tea picking was not on - it would probably be great sight to see tea pickers in action. We were told it is done once in 15 days. The tea gardens have also built some schools - looked very good from outside & located in ideal surroundings

Munnar is synonymus with tea gardens. Anywhere you go in Munnar & you will get to see the tea gardens.

Vast areas of hills are covered with tea plantations. The tea plantations are grown i a particular symmetry giving a magnificent view of the hills

Tea plantations are one of the best attractions in munnar. The entire plantations is so scenic. We even went to tea museum in munnar where they showed how tea is manufactured, history of tea plantation in munnar and different types of tea. We stayed in Tall trees hotel and the hotel offered a 1 hr tea plantation walk in the evening. It was a very nice walk. Would certainly recommend visiting the tea plantations.
