Good tea garden

This is very good garden on hills. You can click very good photos in tea garden. There are guides over there to tell you the history of garden. Tea factory is there. You can also see the tea factory and buy local tea from there.

Good but NOT as good as Happy Valley tea estate

Badamtam Tea Estate is also one of the oldest tea estates in Darjeeling, West Bengal. The workers there are so nice and well behaved. I was really taken aback hearing the hard life they lead. They say the tea estates are not doing good these days. The manager there is also a good person to talk to.

Scenic tea estate a must visit

My first visit to a Tea estate; it's excellent to see green tea leafs being plucked. The beauty of the surrounding is worth appreciating.
