Mangalam Tea Estate is owned by the Jayshree group, who deserve the credit for ensuring the teas from the plantation are of great quality and highly sought after. It is a very unique garden with respect to its plantation structure. They uprooted the older tea sections of Towkok estate, where the bushes were set far apart. They introduced 100% high quality clone seeds instead, and planted them closely in patches which were laid out as grids. This ensured that no space was wasted and the produce per hectare was high. Mangalam tea gardens produce excellent teas with lots of tips that yield a bold, strong liquor.
