    learned something about tea during our visit to the Tea Museum in Munnar.
    Munnar is one of the main tea production place in India apart from
    Assam and Darjeeling.
    we learned about tea making processes , mainly orthodox process and the
    conventional Cut/Tear/Curl ( CTC ) process.
    A high quality tea produced from young leaves will give grainy leaves ,
    while lower quality made from old leaves gives it a powdery form.
