The Tea Planter Garden story

A curated selection of specialty teas sourced from the lush tea gardens in India

In India, it was the British who wanted to experiment growing tea when they came across the thick-leaved Camellia sinensis growing in Assam. And thus, began the story of Assam tea becoming a household staple for over several decades years now! A life of adventure and delight, Assam tea gardens are reminiscent of a mini-England set amongst the dewy hills, lush jungles and gushing rivers. Oriental pied hornbills, giant yet harmless elephants, and a lot more fascinating fauna visit the manager’s bungalow that was built in the mid-1930s. At TCPL, some of our leaders began their careers as young assistants in the Assam tea gardens itself, now having grown to hold key decision-making positions. The colonial beauty of the place attracts humans and animals alike, leaving everyone mesmerised with its age-old beauty. The estate bungalows around the Kaziranga wildlife sanctuary occasionally have one-horned Rhino and Deer as visitors.

Tea is the Elixir of life

Our teas come not just from Assam but 3 more rich regions, giving the tea a distinct taste of its own. The Darjeeling tea, also known as the ‘Champagne of Teas’, is a spectacular tea with a refreshing aftertaste. Our specialty, the ‘Darjeeling rare wonder’ is a connoisseur’s favourite, a first flush Oolong. The blue hills of Nilgiris produce some of the crispiest green teas that bring a feeling of fresh spring in your teacup. Sipping on it truly heightens the senses and relieves the stress to keep you feeling fresh and energised, as if taking a walk in the mountains. Our specialty teas from Munnar, Munnar give you a balanced cup of sweet and, floral freshness. The teas grown on our high range estates of Munnar are rich in antioxidants, with varying floral flavour notes like rose and jasmine.


We partner with organizations like Trustea, Rainforest Alliance, Ethical Tea Partnership to help build sustainable livelihoods in the estates, improve the lives of plantation workers, protect environment flora and fauna and deliver safe products to consumers, through set standards which all estate owners and manufacturers have to comply with.
