India Tea Tourism

India is hoping a new campaign advertising accommodation on 500 tea plantations could boost tourism.

Regions famous for their brews including Sikkim, Darjeeling and Assam promise top-of-the-range accommodation where visitors can see what goes into making the perfect tea.
People can stay in one of the luxurious old colonial buildings, with a veranda surrounding the rooms and sit and watch tea-pickers with wicker baskets on their backs, picking the newest leaves.
