Munnar is blessed with plenty of best places and Tata Tea Museum is one of the must-visit Munnar attractions. The plantations and the museum display the milestones of Munnar's history in tea plantations. The different stages of tea processing and the types of machinery used in the tea powder-making procedure can be seen here. In the history of Munnar, the tea museum holds a prominent place. Visiting this museum is a great experience for those who are interested to explore the culture and history of places. The tea beds look like a green carpet spread over the valley.
It is always better to plan a full day visit to the plantations because that helps you to learn a lot. A half an hour documentary is screened which provides details on the tea culture brought out by the British, the machinery and tools, the complete procedures of cultivating, harvesting, drying, and packaging of Tea. The tea museum also has a display of typewriters, the hand tea roller, magneto phone, and manual calculators, and an iron oven which were used in the past. This is one of the unavoidable Munnar attractions.
Cast amid history and the rich Kerala culture, you can enjoy a serene walkthrough of tradition and antique grace once you reach the Museum. The place is most visited by people who love a first-hand view of ancient Kerala, students who study the history of the British Rule, and of course the dreamy photographers. To reach the Tata Tea Museum, take the road to Munnar and the destination is just about 12 kilometers from Munnar town.
