Though Dharamshala is primarily known for its Tibetan settlements and monasteries set amidst the snowy peaks of Dhauladar ranges, this mini Lhasa is also known for its extensive cover of tea gardens.
Take a drive down the roads of Dharamshala, what hits you is the neatly manicured tea gardens and the magnificent aroma of fresh tea. Dharamshala is situated at an elevation of 1380 msl which is ideal for tea cultivation. Though not as popular as Assam tea or Darjeeling tea, the tea produced in Dharamshala mostly comes from the tea gardens on the way to Palampur and Kangra Valley. The green leaf tea and premium tea along with the many variants of black tea, Oolong tea, herbal tea and jasmine tea, are produced from some of the best tea gardens in Dharamshala.
The various flavors are developed in the ancient tradition by hand picking the tea leaves which requires utmost attention and care.
The tea gardens are invariably interspersed with silver oak trees and one can walk through the gardens and enjoy the greenery.
