This place wasn't on our itinerary but going back without visiting a tea garden sounds incomplete.this one was the closest to the town & at a walking distance from our hotel. We didn't got all the way down as I was having breathing problem.but the views we got in the midway we're spectacular. Highly recommended if you want to have great contrast of green & blue in your backdrop.

We spent 1-2 hours touring the factory and grounds and trying the tea.

To summarise: I won't ever be buying any tea from Harrod's. Happy Valley supplies them but their factory is dirty and plants covered in smog.

After going to Munnar, it has to be said that the tea plantations in Darjeeling are a disappointment.

Happy hello Visitor!
Thank you for the candid review and the compliments to our teas
Regarding your remarks on the cleanliness in the factory - we will take the necessary steps required, and the process for improving the hygiene has already started.
Here’s looking forward to seeing you again on your next visit to misty Darjeeling.
Located at an elevation of 6,400 ft, Happy Valley, spread over 177.36 hectares, Happy Valley is the only tea garden in the heart of Darjeeling town, just a stone’s throw from the zoo. The factory at Happy Valley is the highest in the region and produces the finest quality Darjeeling Tea.
We hope that you had a lovely time and are taking home great memories of Darjeeling.

My family and myself went there for a tea garden tour and we were overwhelmed by the hospitality. The tour was awesome (though it was a little one) and I must say I enjoyed. The tickets are a bit costly. But that's okay.
