KOLKATA, NOVEMBER 29: Your tea break was never so exotic. Inspired by the success of whisky and wine makers, Indian tea planters are turning parts of their verdant Assam and Darjeeling estates in the east of the country into luxury resorts.
Guests get to tour tea gardens and pluck tea leaves. Nature walks, trekking, rafting and golf are also on offer, punctuated, of course, by as much tea tasting as you like.

BALIPARA (ASSAM): In what is set to become a trend, tea companies are taking a relook at some of their idle properties, in order to make them income-generating ventures, while also promoting the cause of the industry and helping local people. The ball will be set rolling with a project jointly being promoted in Assam by McLeod Russel (India) Ltd (MRIL) and River Journeys & Bungalows of India (RJBI). While MRIL has tea gardens in Assam and Dooars, RJBI is the holding company of WG Resorts Ltd., which owns one of the region's oldest resorts near the Kaziranga National Park.

The plan is to create a chain of properties across a number of tea gardens spreading from the Terai and Dooars in West Bengal to Assam and further into Myanmar.

In a trend-setting exercise, tea producer McLeod Russel India Ltd (MRIL) has refurbished and redecorated one of its Assam tea gardens to begin tea tourism in India.
