Different Teas to try at Munnar

Of the things that Munnar is renowned for, Tea seems to be one of the best. There are more than 50 Tea Estates at this magical destination.

If you love tea a lot, then Munnar is the right place to head to. The entire process of plucking out tea leaves, drying them and oxidising them is very interesting to watch. With so many varieties of tea, the processing method for each varies. Grown on the undulated terrains, the tea plantations in Munnar appear like a thick green sheet covering the mountains.

Teas to try at Munnar

While you are at Munnar, here are a few varieties of tea that you should taste:

Typical Munnar Tea

A typical tea of Munnar produces a somewhat golden yellow colour with a refreshing aroma. The tea is medium toned and leaves a fruity tinge after every sip. The fragrance is similar to that of a sweet biscuit dipped in malt.

Black Tea

This is a peculiar type of tea available in Munnar. The leaves as well as the brewed tea is dark in colour such that it seems to be oxidized. Black tea usually contains more amount of caffeine as compared to other teas and gives a strong flavour.

White Tea

Wondering whether white tea is white? Well it’s not. This type of tea is produced from leaves that are left to wither. These wilted leaves are dried and processed. White tea has a delicate and subtle aroma. It has less caffeine and is not as finely processed as Green Tea.

Green Tea

This tea is processed and its oxidisation is halted by steaming, baking, or pan-firing. The process preserves Vitamin C in the leaves, thereby making it healthy.

Apart from these, there are a variety of teas available. Visit the famous Tea Museum which is situated in the Idukki district of Kerala and get acquainted with the variety of teas.

Tea lovers will have a wonderful time at Munnar. And to make your stay here truly memorable, there is a Club Mahindra resort. From lavish accommodation to a variety of activities to indulge in, your stay here will be truly rejuvenating. If you are not a member yet, then become one by paying the appropriate Club Mahindra Membership fees, and get ready for amazing holidays every year, for the next 25 years.

Four Colours of Vacationing with Club Mahindra

Has holiday planning becoming a difficult task? Have you booked your vacation hastily only to end up at a destination swarming with tourists? Are you looking for a splendid getaway in the company of nature, away from the everyday ordeal? Then you are just a few steps away from your dream vacation.

dream-vacation-club-mahindra

Club Mahindra understands the need of every vacationer, and has created different membership options. Truly, not everyone can step out for a vacation only when it’s a national holiday or when the world celebrates New Year. Club Mahindra understands this need of the members to holiday at their own convenience, without being restricted to a specific time of the year only. Accordingly, different seasons with variable Club Mahindra membership fees have been set. Club Mahindra has categorised the seasons into four colours for its members – Blue, White, Red, and Purple. If you are not one of those who always wants to holiday in peak season, you will fall in the category of Blue Colour. For example, you can head to Goa during the monsoons too. This is the off-season in Goa and there will not be many tourists around at this point of time, so you can enjoy the serene and lush green side of Goa and being a privileged member, you can make a reservation at any of the three Club Mahindra Resorts- Acacia Palms, Emerald Palms, and Varca Beach and enjoy a holiday here.

The White season demarcates the time between the peak season and the off-season. Very similar to the Blue season, members who enjoy vacationing in a quiet and peaceful manner can opt for travelling to exotic destinations in this season. This is mostly the time when tourists head back to their homes. Club Mahindra members can simply enjoy access to any of the 46 resorts across India and abroad. So whether they choose to go to a hill station or a city, they do not have to worry about any season.

Members who prefer to go on vacations as per their children’s holidays such as summer vacations, Red season is appropriate for them. This season is actually the peak season for travellers. Those who are comfortable with travelling at any time of the year but particularly around events such as New Year’s or during festivals fall under the category of Purple season. Club Mahindra welcomes its guests to all its destinations all-year round. To get an insight on the hospitality and level of service provided, you can go through the Club Mahindra reviews and know about the unique holiday experiences of the members.
