Valparai -the Tea Country

 Tea is called the cup that cheers. Valparai is a place in India synonimous with tea.
 Miles of precious rainforest have been felled to make place for the plantations of tea.
 Stunted alien looking trees dot the tea gardens.
 You can come across some wild flowers at the edge of the plantations.
 There are tiny pockets of the old rainforest in some places.
With thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday and Mrs.Nesbitt and the team of ABCWednesday, I am linking with them.
