I was on my way from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya and had heard about beautiful tea plantations on the way. On further little bit of an interrogation of local people, I understood there are about a couple of tea factories that are good and worth a visit. One of them is the BLUEFIELD TEA GARDENS. This name came across &... More

This tea estate is closed on Sunday. They have tours of the factory and a gift shop to purchase some tea for home. They also have a nice restaurant for tea sampling and cake. The views are awesome!

The staff here do a guided tour of the tea factory, and it is interesting to note how tea is prepared and the treatment for making dust, white tea and green tea. Visitors also get to taste the exotic Orange Pekoe tea made specially here. There is a depot which sells tea made here. The tea is quite expensive when... More

Complimentary personalised tour of the factory with a pleasant guide to see how the freshly-picked green leaves are processed. Then a welcoming tea room to relax, sample, enjoy (and purchase) the wares.

I was expecting a bit more from the visit. The guided tour took about 10 mins, and that was it. I was expecting a bit more. The factory store was really nice though and we did end up buying a lot of tea.

Interesting tour of the tea producing factory - short and sweet. Afterwards you can taste tea as well as purchase all kinds of tea. Cool experience.

I am a frequent visitor of this place and it is once in two or three weeks. I like their tea and use to purchase op/pekoe for our personal use. Compared to the service this place offered few years back, now the quality is little by little degrading. Wash rooms are not properly cleaned specially in times where higher number... More

Profesional and not too turistic in comparison with more famous places. Fair prices for the tea shopping.

Worth the stop enroute Nuwara-Kandy. The tea factory visit was informative and interesting. At the end, you are welcome to taste a cup of tea at their tea shop. All for free. The retail stores stocked up quite a good range of tea and gifts.
