About
At Tranquilitea, we offer a gourmet tea tasting experience where guests get to experience the world of specialty teas with the myriad colours, flavours and aromas that the finest Nilgiri teas have to offer. The experience takes place within our tea estate in Coonoor where guests get to experience the journey of tea from plant to cup. Following the tea tasting, our guests are also welcome to take a walk in our tea estate and try their hand at a bit of tea plucking if they choose to. You can also join us for our high tea experience following the tea tasting if you choose to. The entire tea tasting experience takes about an hour and do note that we conduct our tea tasting experiences as well as our high tea experiences purely by reservation only so please do call, email or visit our website to book a slot.

Excellent experience

Tea tasting not to be missed. Sandeep, the owner, knows all there is to know about tea. His tea tasting experience is amazing - who knew there was so much to know?

A Highlight of our trip to Southern India
Feb 2020
We were treated to a fabulous experience and have had to relearn our understanding of tea and how to brew it. We were treated to a lovely lunch served in the garden, given a short tour of the tea plantation with a description of the process and an opportunity to try our hand at picking. The tea tasting that followed was a real eye-opener and we started to understand the difference betwee body & flavour.

The highlight our our Coonoor trip
Nov 2018 • Couples
Visiting Tranquilitea estate was definitely our standout experience from our Coonoor trip. The place is beautiful and the owner is a very soft spoken and knowledgeable person. You get to know about the entire process of tea cultivation and processing, the concepts and parameters on which teas are differentiated and also get to be a part of an awesome tea tasting experience.

The charges are overall nominal, lower for a group session whereas a bit higher for a private session. We had opted for a group session but turned out to be lucky that we were the only people on that day. :D

If you really like of or more of the teas (which you probably will), you can buy it from them too.

The owner was also kind enough to recommend a couple of good cafes in the vicinity and even contact the owners for facilitating an immediate visit for us as the place is reservation-only.

Overall, highly recommended if you plan to visit Coonoor. This experience should be on top of your list.

Informative and soothing

I visited Coonoor and the place is such a beauty. It’s beautiful because of establishments like Tranquilitea. Large property. Lush green plantation. Very quiet. One can hear meditate here for real without much effort.
The place can be booked by Air BnB. Have only two rooms so a total of 4 people can stay here in this property. The host Sandeep welcomes you as part of his family. Nice cosy feeling.

The tea tasting session is what I went for before taking a tour of the estate.
Have been drinking tea for God knows how long and could not appreciate it as we did not have a background. One must go here and spend some 2-3 hours. The hills are a place where time slowly. A cup of gourmet tea to pass the time would make it perfect.
Don’t forget the view of the tea tasting session. It’s to die for.

I have seen many tea gardens in Darjeeling. The tea garden near Conoor is also very attractive. Here the entire tea garden is well maintained.

Wow I never realised how much there was to learn about Tea! Fantastic experience. Excellent host, who explained everything in fine detail. Beautiful property high in the mountains. Wandered around the pretty gardens while a sumptuous meal was prepared by our hostess. The creme brulee for dessert was to die for.
