History - Tea tourism is a trend developed in this millennium. Tea cultivation flourished in India when it was under the rule of British Empire. Today India is the largest exporter of tea all over the world. Tea Industries is going through recession for the last six to seven years facing a financial crunch due to many reasons and then this idea of tourism cropped up.

This is basically a result of diversification of the Tea industries and the tourism department. Tea tourism is a trendsetter in generating funds and to utilize the unused bungalow’s and quarter in the garden. They are converted to resort’s catering to the needs of the tourist. Concept of tea tourism has been initiated by some tea estate like Tea Estate like Makaibari, Glenburg, Marianbarrie and Faskua. Mainly due to the falling fortunes in tea production business, experts said, such ventures (Tea Tourism) have two advantages. First it creates an additional revenue stream and second, reduces maintenance cost of these properties.

Our venture has been developed due to four main reasons

  • To expose the tourist to the plantation, manufacturing and the greenery of the garden away from the concrete jungle.
  • To add up one more option to our packages
  • Its mutually beneficial to us as well as the Tea Estate
  • It generate employment  

Tea tourism is a form of ecotourism hence means responsible travel to natural areas, which conserves the environment and improves the welfare of local people.

Nestled deep in the verdant tea gardens, staff living quarters and bungalows are being turned into luxury apartments with modern amenities. Similar resorts are coming up in Assam and in the north eastern state of West Bengal as well as in south India. But Darjeeling is something special due to its colonial past and quality of tea.
