Within the pristine ecological surrounds of the Sourenee Tea garden, perched on a hillock at 4500 ft, surrounded by rolling hills of tea and pine trees, is the beautiful ‘Sourenee Homestay’, which offers you every scope to have a feel of organic immersion with the surrounding nature which is more bewitching than what even your wildest imagination can paint on a canvas.
The word Sourenee has been derived from a local legend... people say it’s a combination of two local Hindi words ‘Sau’ and ‘Rani’ which means 100 Queens. Another version of the legend says it’s combination of the words ‘Sour’ (a medicinal tree growing in the area) and ‘Rani’.
Sourenee tea estate has its altitude varying from 700 mtrs to 1300 mtrs and covers an area of 137 hectares. The estate produces black tea, green tea, black blossoms, silver green, oolong etc.
❝ Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not ❞
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
The views from the lawns as well as the beautiful rooms are kingsize, droolworthy and absolutely a shutterbugs delight. The moving clouds against a bright blue sky, the verdant forests, the rising folds of hills far away and the delicious green tea garden close by together conjure some magic which is hard to express. The chill in the wind and constant cooing of birds make a heavenly atmosphere.
