The main purpose of my visit to India was to stay at the Glenburn Tea Estate. We have been selling tea from Glenburn for about a year, but I wanted to visit the garden and see for myself how things are done. Started by a Scottish tea company in 1859, Glenburn was bought in 2000 by one of India’s pioneering tea planting families – The Prakashes who also have an estate in Assam. Husna-Tara Prakash took on the roll of adapting the old managers house into a boutique hotel.
This was my room on the first night. After staying in some sketchy places in Rajasthan this was like a vacation from the rest of the trip.
It was a little early in the season, but you can see this area outside my window will turn into a wonderful garden in a month or so.
