Kangra takes a special place in the World of Indian Teas. Kangra Teas are very limited in quantity and very special in quality. This tea growing Region falls in the North of India on the Himalayan foothills in of the Kanga Valley, Himachal Pradesh. It all happened when Dr Jameson, then Superintendent of the Botanical Gardens in Peshawar in the North West Provinces, on a visit in 1849, declared that the district was right for tea cultivation. Seedlings were brought in from China and the first estate was set up in 1852.
The second half of the 19th century saw a small, but thriving tea industry take shape at Kangra. However, Sadly, Kangra tea fell off the map when a devastating earthquake struck the region in 1905 and badly disrupted the industry. European planters left the region, handing over their estates to their workers or local traders.
Wah Tea Estate, with a continuous history of cultivation since 1857, deserves all the attention it can get. The name Wah is got from Wah in Pakistan, the first owner was the Nawab of Wah. In 1953, the estate was taken over by the 'chaiwala family' and it has remained within the family since then.
The spring picked leaves of the Kangra tea estate are specially rolled by hand and roasted in special woks (KADHAIS) and this traditional method of manufacturing in Kangra produces a uniquely flavoured tea with healing properties as well,
A special tea tour is organized for visitors to the Wah Tea Estate.
