Kausani Tea Estate

The place has hardly anything to see with a closed tea factory. There is a shawl factory opposite to it which is OK. There is a restaurant which serves good tea and food.

Average Tea Estate

You can afford to miss this place if you have traveled to the tea estates of Kerala, Darjeeling and Assam. This one is pretty miniature and probably not much well maintained. I visited the place at around 4 PM. It might feel better if visited under bright sunshine.

Beautiful tea bagan

The tea bagan is as beautiful as it seen in this picture. I thoroughly enjoyed here and spent more than an hour. Greenery and fragrance of this bagan is enough to catch your heart.

Small but developing

Good tea gardens, smaller but they are being developed and still in developing stage. You can have local tea from the gardens, price varies from garden to garden.

Enjoyable place

Tea estate is very good. There we taste lichi juice and ate many other things. There we saw tea factory and many types of trees. There are many others people who came with their family. We drink tea there and it was very tasty. We enjoyed very much. I remember the lines that are written there "four cup a day keeps the doctor away".

Not much big

The tea gardens are not big rather, they seem like they are grown in a backyard in some bungalow. You can shop for the shawls and other stuff in the factory outlets nearby but looking for tea gardens in Kausani? Big dissapointment.

Wrapped in mist and greenery

The tea-estate is situated in Kausani (miles away from the main spot) which we visited on our way to Bageshwar. There are simple tea gardens - a stretch of rich green along the slope and valley & there in the estate are the office and the factory.On our visit, an officer sent a guide to help us wander and locate the varieties of tea. I found no shops nearby selling tea, but on request a cup of tea of some variety can be given to taste. The exclusive top variety is kept to deliver. The factory runs well but the looks confirmed that it runs in small scale - with less working staff.Unlike Darjeeling, tea gardens are not the main attraction of Kausani, yet in looks the tea gardens are really beautiful, and the monsoon weather made it more - the atmosphere calm and deep and the green gardens are veiled in mist where often fresh tea leaves are seen dripped in moist or dew.

Not much appealing

The tea garden as such wasn't that appealing (month of Feb) especially if you have visited places like Darjeeling, Dooars, Munnar etc. But yes the view of the Himalayas from the place is good. There is a cafe serving the local tea as well and a shop on the roadside selling local tea.

Average visit

Not so praiseworthy. It must be organised, if there is time then one can visit this place but according to me it is not a must to visit this place. To know how the tea leaves are processed or how tea packaging is done then one can surely. Tea is sold there one can have tea.
