Tea and Tourism festival begins in Ooty

The much famed Tea and Tourism festival begins in Ooty. The tea and tourism festival, which used to be held during autumn season, was included in the Ooty summer festival this year.

The festival was introduced in 1994 to hold it in winter holidays to bring more tourists to the hills. The two-day event was inaugurated at the Research Centre for Tribal Culture building in Ooty on Saturday.

This year the festival boasts 10 stalls and, on display are tea-ice cream and a variety of flavoured teas.
