Munnar will welcome you with a carpet of tea bushes. The land where the three mountain streams Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala meet is home to tea that is a blend of health and taste. The teas are cultivated in the undisturbed ecosystem of the Western Ghats. With some tea plantations at 2200 m above sea level, Munnar has some of the highest growing tea regions in the world. Tea gardens interspersed with fuel plantations and ‘Sholas’ are one of the unique features of this area. Munnar orthodox tea is known for its distinctive clean and medium toned fragrance of sweet biscuit in dip malt. The golden yellow brew with an orange depth is a combination of strength and briskness. Munnar may be known for its tea, but it has enough reasons to draw a nature-lover to it. The beauty of its pristine valleys, mountain, rivers and flora and fauna-rich mountains are fascinating.
