Ever spent a day in an old mansion in a Tea-Estate amidst the scenery of surpassing loveliness. Waking up to the chirping sounds of tiny birds in the morning. Watching the floating clouds enveloping across Mountain areas. We were lucky enough to experience a Dreamy Vacation at Teanest, Best Home-stay in a Tea-Estate.

Things To Do at Teanest, Kotagiri
Tea Plantation & Tea Pluckers:
The Resort is just middle of a Tea Estate which brings the opportunities to interact with Tea pluckers working there. They will greet you with a big broad smile but their hands won’t stop for a moment plucking those buds of tea. Their day ends with the final weighing of plucked teas as the sun sets. Then they are off to home.
Unlike other parts of the country, tea in Nilgiris is grown throughout the year. The major auction center for Nilgiris tea is Coonoor which happens every week.
- Hammock Charm: Lazing in a hammock next to a Tea Plantation is what a perfect vacation sounds. The blue hammock is quite catchy here once you step out of the mansion. Soaking up the sun was the best part of my holidays. The nights were chilled enough which made me lazing in the hammock for some extra hours. They have a good collection of books. If you are not an e-reader, then just grab one of your favorites from the shelf.

- Relish Local Food: You gonna love the food here. Apart from Tea, they grow organic vegetables like carrots, beans, beetroots, garlic etc. Don’t miss the Mutton Curry at Teanest. I enjoyed with steamed rice. When you dine with a Tea Plantation view, the food tastes even more delicious. Isn’t it? You can start your day enjoying a leisurely breakfast with the sight of Blue Hills. Poha in the breakfast along with South-Indian mandatory dishes were truly delicious. It’s not an everyday affair that one gets a chance to sip Morning Tea in a Tea-Estate. The experience itself was so enticing for me. I remember the count of my teacup in a day. It was around 5 to 6 times. It is perfectly acceptable when you are at Teanest!
