Tea tour

Basic but adequate tour of a tea factory- free apart from a tip at the end. Good way to see how a tea factory operates.

Small fee to guide to take around the tea processing factory and the 100 year old equipment. An eye opener on making differing qualities and types of tea with a sample afterwards. There is a reasonably priced shop also for the tea produced. Was a welcome break en route on a long journey and worth a visit as is nestled... More

Poorer tour than most. Or you are left to wander in the factory. Main focus seems to be getting people to the shop and cafe.

as nuwaraeliya is unique so is its tea the fragrance of cypress trees and the menthol of wild mint and eucalyptus floats through the air and contributes to the teas characteristic flavour

The place is just off the main road. The tour of the factory was short and had to be shared with another language group. Imagine the guide speaking to one group in Arabic and later to your group in English. I suppose you can't complain too much as they don't charge for it. The tea house is not too conducive... More

I think the guiding around the factory was a bit short, but it was quite informative. The factory itself was looking very old, but I believe it is the way they make tea in 2015 anyway. It was interesting, and I got a good idea how the process of making tea works. There is a small restaurant and giftshop that... More

I was expecting an in depth demonstration of tea making. What we actually got was quickly shuffled around a tea factory where not everything was currently being done. In places it was hard to hear what the guide was saying due to machinery noise. It was, however, still interesting to see what happens in a tea factory. The shop has... More

As a tea lover, I really enjoyed our tour in Bluefield tea gardens. Despite being short, we learned a lot about tea production and the difference between the various tea types and leafs. Thanks to that trip, now i know how to buy and prepare a good cup of tea.

Had a very informative tour of factory which lasted about 45 minutes. Then got a complimentary tea however was very weak. Operates on a tip only basis so doesn't have to be expensive. Nice gift shop where you can buy tea.
