If you have never seen tea plantations and live in the hot tropical zone, I can imagine Munnar feels like paradise. If you have worked as a tea picker in the Munnar region all your life and live in a simple shack struggling to keep dry during the monsoon rains, your perpsective might be very different.

I wonder how the landscape looked like before the tea estates were established. Now wildlife has been pushed back to the very small wild margins of the plantations high in the hills. The original ecosystems were severely damaged. Perhaps time to at least give some of the land back. The general trend however is the other way. I observed many slopes being prepared for further extentions of the tea 'gardens'.

Worth the 250 rupees for foreigners to visit. The video explained the history of tea production in Munnar and modern production and how the tea companies support their workers with education, housing and jobs.

We stayed in Munnar and from the moment we arrived, we were surrounding by flowing green hills, tea gardens. There are many lookout and spots to stop for photos, but drivers need to be careful of the winding roads, especially during rain. We saw too many car and bike accidents. There are limited places to see tea being produced and even fewer to do a proper tea tasting. The scenery made up for that and being able to walk between old tea bushes, some with new growth, flowers and even seeds. It is a magical experience.

We had a very informed guide who explained everything. We visited the tea factory and the gardens. We had a delicious masala tea at the factory and learned about all of the processes. Afterwards, we were about to go to the gift shop for fabulous gifts of tea for friends and family. We watched workers plucking the tea leaves and wandered among the plants. Beautiful experience.

The tea estates in Munnar are very beautiful and well maintained and it is a pleasure to watch them. Fortunately I could see it from the balcony of my hotel room.

As you drive around Munnar, you just cannot miss the expanse of the tea plantations from the roadside to the top of the mountains. From a distance it’s just incredible and the views are fantastic like a green velvet carpet. Tea is what makes Munnar, I guess.
