About the farmer: This tea farm is called Neelamalai, owned by Murali Subramanian. It employs 8 year-round workers. The tea production is 100% self-sufficient,everything they need to produce tea is provided in the farm. Their level of generosity in regards the salary, yearly bonuses and housing is humbling, and everyone should learn from their example how to lift the status of this generally underrated occupation.
