McLeod Russel set to begin tea tourism

The Hindu Business Line

10th October, 2005


The plan is to create a chain of properties across a number of tea gardens spreading from the Terai and Dooars in West Bengal to Assam and further into Myanmar.

In a trend-setting exercise, tea producer McLeod Russel India Ltd (MRIL) has refurbished and redecorated one of its Assam tea gardens to begin tea tourism in India.

Tea tourism seems to be the brew of the month. The BM Khaitan group-owned McLeod Russel has drawn up a plan to deck up its British-era bungalows in Assam and north Bengal in a bid to attract domestic and foreign tourists to this ecologically-diversified region.

Have you been there and done that! Here is an experience for the jaded palate. A little nostalgia for the British Raj helps along with stories of the Koi hai days of the old tea planters. Reinforcing the Raj experience with a difference is the antiquate Land Rover, the GI jeep, the horse-driven carriage. Macleod Russel India Limited (MRIL) chairman Brij Mohan Khaitan is almost the last Brit standing in Assam and his 'agency-style' tea gardens have retained some of the best flavours of the old planting life.
