Kolkata: Andrew Yule & Co, that has 15 tea gardens in West Bengal and Assam on Friday inaugurated its model tea garden and tea lounge at Eco Park, Nee Town – on the northern fringes of the city.
The inauguration was done by the Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee, over video conferencing.
The just inaugurated tea lounge has three areas – AC, non-AC, and tent.
According to Sunil Munshi, Director-Personnel and head of the tea division, the (model) tea garden, made on an acre of land came up with an estimated investment of Rs 1.1 crore.
