When it comes to tea, or tea gardens for that matter, the place that comes to our mind is Ilam, a far-eastern district in Nepal. Ilam is a tea heaven, as it has the right combination of soil and climate conditions for growing tea leaves.
Tea is grown in around a three dozen districts of Nepal these days but Ilam appears on the top for producing tea leaves with distinctive aroma and taste. Ilam has a rich history and tradition of tea plantation. It is now the right to time to promote Nepali tea and tea growing areas in the global market. While tea can help growers earn money, systematic development of tea gardens can also turn the regions where it is grown into tourist destinations. Thus, the country as a whole can earn from what we can say tea tourism.
Gorkha Tea has also developed HOME STAY at farmer house under “Tea and Tourism”.
