A Postcard from Ambootia

During my last few days in I Darjeeling I visited the Ambootia plantation, one of the first tea gardens established by the British in the mid-19th century. Here are a few pics from my time there.

  1. Love the photos of landscape, women working in their colorful work clothes, the boys, the inside operation and what ‘foodish’ boy looks like. And of course, ..Darjeeling tea
