PEDRO tea estate
Taste a delicate swirling cup of tea nestled between lush green hillsides streaked with tea bushes and stellar views.

A chunk of the Himalayas brought down in the jaw of a monkey god. Drink in the aromas of late blooms of Hakgala, a temperate hill-country garden rich in colour; iridescent blues and greens, blade-like leaves, clumps of willows and shaggy trees, mingling low-country lotus’ and water lilies in simple serenity with sophisticated English roses and endemic orchids home to a variety of wild life
