Munnar Tea Hills

Although Munnar, India, is known for its quantity of tea (rather than its quality of tea), it is one of the most beautiful tea producing regions in the world. Sights like this one are commonplace there.

Munnar is one of many tea origins Lindsey has researched documented in her travels. Other areas of investigation include Nilgiri, Assam, Darjeeling, Shizuoka, Uji, Ping Lin, Miaoli and Dong Ding.
