The elderly gentlemen conducting a tea briefing was good. Informative.suggest if he could stop demeaning India about no knownledge of tea and its importance and praise of japan and china. India did also give world about neem and turmeric let's not forget we did get Ayurveda to the world.

You get good info about the medicinal properties of tea. Have an entry fee of 80 per adult. They explain everything abt tea and the benefits of consuming tea. Green tea cut leaves cost me abt inr 100 for one packet. Unique filter available to consume green tea for abt inr 750. They also show a documentary abt tea gardens.

Go here only if you don't have any other scenic place pending in your itinerary. Go here if you want to show your children how tea is prepared. It's sort of demo.The video is interesting.

For all the Tea enthusiasts and others too, this place should never be missed. They have a small customized processing line where one can actually see the Tea being manufactured. Surely a must go place.

We definitely learned more about how tea is made and it was interesting to see the process and machinery (still) used. By American standards, it's not an expensive excursion and, therefore, probably worth the hour or so. But the "tea guy" is hard to understand and is more of a propagandist than a guide trying to educate and engage with... More

The tea museum is certainly a relic of the glory days of early development of tea growing in the Munnar region. Lots of interesting old photos and bits of machinery and a theatre area with random plastic chairs and a door that needs to be lifted to open showing an very interesting old video on the history of tea growing....
