Our story is set in the high tea plantations of northern India. The main character Tashi finds she must pick tea to pay for a doctor when her mother falls ill. However, she is too small to reach the shoots and the cruel Overseer sends her away empty handed. Tashi needs a miracle! Then something extraordinary happens.

 

We began by researching some background information and even had a tea tasting session!
