Tea Baby

I always wanted to know where tea comes from! This baby tea leaf is from the gorgeous tea plantation, Highfield Estates, in Coonoor. If you are ever in the area, they will show you around their fields and processing plant, very easy and enjoyable time. Sam and I followed the tour up with a tasting session, tasting a “flight” of teas produced there. Sam’s favorite? Highfield Chocolate Tea, a medium grade leaf blended with little chocolate pellets. Boil it in milk, add sugar, and believe it or not, it’s delicious :)
