Tea Factory

Taking a short break in Ooty was refreshing to me, as I love nature, to be surrounded by hills and trees and breathing in fresh air, away from the noise and pollution in the city is worth the time and effort.

One of the places we enjoyed visiting was the tea factory, as we had our daughters with us – we felt it would be an interesting experience to see the tea factory.  There is 5 rupees entry ticket and we are shown the whole process of how tea is made and at the end of the tour we are given a hot cup of tea to drink. I walked along as I saw how the tea leaves were withered, fixed, oxidized, rolled and dried and segregated, different flavors added to it. 

We clicked a few pictures as we were led around in the factory.

Now I am mindful when I take tea J as I drink with gratitude bringing to my mind the whole process that goes in before it reaches my cup. 

“There is no need to have any special attitude while drinking except one of thankfulness.
The nature of tea itself is that of no mind.” Pojong Sunim
