Tea Tour in India

Duration : 10 Days Tour
Destination : Delhi - Dibrugarh - Guwahati - Bagdogra - Darjeeling - Bagdogra - Delhi

When you pour your sparkling cup of tea, have you ever thought, what is its history? How is it cultivated and prepared?

Though there are many myths about the origin of Tea drinking the most popular one goes like this. During 2737 BC emperor Shen Nung once was about to drink some boiling water, when few leaves from an overhanging tree blew into the pan and inquisitive emperor decided to taste this unusual looking brew. What he discovered then is the 'Tea' of today both delicious and refreshing, without realizing that this one day will become a cause for 'Tea Connoisseurs' across the globe to travel thousands of miles to see how their passion is grown, nurtured and how meticulously they prepared.

At Namaste Tours, we will take you to the areas that produce some of the best teas in the world- Assam and Darjeeling.
