Tea Tourism is a recent initiative from tourism department, to promote tea estates as travel destinations.
India has a large tea growing area and they are usually in beautiful hilly locations, such as Darjeeling and Munnar. In last few years, enterprising tea estates like Glenburn have converted bungalows in their estates to holiday houses and have been accepting guests. It's a unique idea that has found many takers.
Tea tourism mostly aims to catch high-end travellers, with rooms that can cost as much as $200 to $400 per day, but an increasing popularity would eventually lead to more tourists to hills, and allow less expensive places to come up around the tea estates.
