Tea is an indulgence that is difficult to resist in this country. You have tea the first thing in the morning, at work, on the streets and even at movies.
But there are some exquisite locations in India, where you must have tea and remember it for a life time.
1. Sandakphu in Darjeeling
Chai will seem like a glass of single malt scotch when you will have it at the peak of Sandakphu. And while you sip it, you will be able to see at least four major peaks from here. Where else in the world can you have tea in an orchid forest.
2. Nubra Valley in Ladakh
Just imagine for a moment the pleasure a hot cup of tea will give you in the cold icy winds of Ladakh. The beauty of the barren mountains will only get enhanced.
3. Pangong Lake in Ladakh
Don’t miss the opportunity of having hot ginger tea with the magnificent Pangong Lake in the backdrop. The myriad colours of the water and nature all around will stay with you for life.
4. Tsongmo Lake in Sikkim
While the meandering mountains cast a spell on you, a warm cup of tea will make you forget all worries. You might even forget that you are at 12,400 feet and have only Yaks for company.
5. Athirappilly Falls in Kerala
You are sure to get enchanted the moment you see these falls. The path that leads up to them with trees all around will leave a lasting impression on your mind. Soak it all in with a cup of hot tea.
