It was raining the day we went there and the factory was off. But this didn't prevent the staff from showing all about how everything works. We also enjoyed a good free cup off tea and orders some sandwiches. The road to it has amazing views.

Bluefield is no doubt the highlight of the tea country. It is far away from the town; about an hour by car/tuk tuk but worth enjoying the scenery. As you reach the gardens, you will be welcome by the helpful staff and indulge in the fragrance of tea. Price too is good, buy tea for yourself and others. They have... More

There are better tea factories than this. The tour was over in 10 minutes. The guide spoke a non-too-good English. After the quick tour he escorted us into the shop and hung around to make sure we bought something. There is however a complimentary cup of tea and you tip whatever you like. If you travel through Ella - visit... More

We visited Bluefield on our way to Little England. The stopover was really worthwhile as the workers there were patient enough to explain to us the different process in the tea process including selection, drying etc. We also have a cup of free tea for tasting. After which we hurried to the souvenir shop to purchase different kinds of tea... More

First, it's pretty far away from Centre of Nuwara Eliya. Pedro is lot closer and lot better and professional place to visit. Secondly, their factory and field is open to all people! Meaning everyone can go in without any factory guide. When I was in Pedro Tea Estate, we have to wear a apron and hat before we can go... More

We had a wonderful explanation about tea making in Sri Lanka. A lady had explained in Arabic how tea is made. From collecting the leaves and classifying the different types until dispatching the products to the auction. Five different black tea types, green one and the most expensive white tea. At the place all these tea types are sold in... More
