Welcome to the Wah Tea Estate


The mystical, the mythical, the historical, the natural - discover a whole new world out there in the vast tracts of unpolluted, tranquil KANGRA where the pine-scented air is said to have curative powers. It is, also, the Tea Capital of Northern India.

Kangra Tea fell off the map when a devastating earthquake struck the region in 1905 and badly disrupted the industry. Only a handful of private tea estates of small growers survived.

That is why, Wah Tea Estate, with a continuous history of cultivation since 1857, deserves all the attention it can get. The name Wah derives from Wah in Pakistan - the first owner was the Nawab of Wah. In 1953, the estate was taken over by the 'chaiwala family'. 'Chaiwalas', which literally mean 'tea planters', have been closely related with the Indian tea industry for atleast half a century. Wah has passed hands within the family and is now looked after by Deepak and Surya, the third and fourth generation of the family.
