This place is nothing extraordinary. It was a simple stoppage during the tour and we have many like these in India esp when you are traveling in the hills. I assure you we have even better stuff liek Tapri etc here. The factory has a small cafe which is very rustic and seems to come from the olden era. We... More

Altogether I agree with the previous evaluator. Fee 25 SCR (cca 1 Ł) is not overpriced but sometimes there is no one at reception and your tour is free of charge (and without interpretation). Tea tavern is fine.

Nice enough little cafe, however the shop that sells the teas they produce ask for twice the amount the product costs in local stores. Especially so for the organic range which costs something like 70 Rupees compares to 20 something in the stores.

A memorable visit to the tea factory with its stunning mountain top views and quiet, serene atmosphere. We were fortunate to have a tour with the director of the factory who drove us to the nearby area where the tea leaves were growing, as well as bounty of other plant life and to see, touch and yes, smell cinnamon, cloves...

We bought some tea at the Tea Factory Shop (the one you see from the road, opposite the parking area) today and found out later that they charge more than double the price than in the supermarkets on the island. We drove back to the tea factory and I asked the guy why it is more expensive at the tea... More

You can make a stopover at Tea Factory and see packing process. Vantage points from top of the mountain @ tea factory gives you a panoromic view of Sea . on the... More

It is, what it is, it is a tea factory. I would not call it exciting. Good way to to pass time if you are in that area of the island, but do not go out of your way just to see this.
