Assam will be our next stop on the tea garden journey. Assam is home to some of the most important tea producers in the world. The tea gardens produce over 1.5 million lbs of tea each year. Assam and Southern China are the only countries that have native tea plants. Tea gardens in Assam have their time zone because they are so productive. Tea garden time is an hour ahead of Indian standard. This system was created to make the most of the sunrise. In Assam, you will also see animals like the Red-headed Vulture and Hoolock Gibbon. Assam is only 45-60 meters above sea level. This is a deficient number compared to Darjeeling, where teas can be grown between 600 and 2000 meters above sea level.
Nilgiris Hills, Tamil Nadu, Dooars-Terai, Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, Munnar, and Kangra are all good places to visit to experience the Indian tea garden atmosphere.
