Tea Time!

When one grows weary of the hussle and bussle of India that is in the capital region around Delhi, there’s a more easy pace of life to be found in the northern Indian hills of the lower Himalayas. Mirik, Darjeeling, and Gangtok are highly recommended! Here I learned the secrets of finding the right tea leaves and turning them into that magical brew that the British love so much. That basket was heavy!  It’s a good thing that I had my early training in a tobacco field. Sorry I can’t take you inside the factory – their process is secret, so they wouldn’t allow photos.
