Govindamangalam has been associated with the tea business for more than 100 years. In 1919, KP Govinda Menon started off trading Tea in a small shop in the heart of Kerala’s Trading Hub, Cochin. The major brand of Nilgiri Tea was their key product in the store. From the sensitive, flavoury Nilgiri Orthodox teas to the strong, coloury CTC Teas, KPGM had the total spectrum of South Indian Teas to offer. We also have our unique blends that made them stand high in the usual sensitive market. Today KPGM is a name synonymous with quality tea with a one-hundred-year-old tradition of classic tea blending. The range of tea KPGM produces, spans from popular ones to singular custom-made ones.
Mr Suresh Balaraman who is the host is the grandson of KP Govindamenon, who also runs KPGM Teas now. Tea tasting is an activity you can experience at Govindamangalam and it’s run by Mr Suresh himself. He has 40 years of experience in tea the business and you will be learning about the intricacies of Tea tasting and blending during the session. (Please check for the availability of this tour prior)
