We were assigned a guide who gave us a brief but informative tour of the factory and explained all about the tea plantations , the history and the process from picking the tips to the leaf tea. Unfortunately we visited on a Sunday when they were not picking so it was a bit quiet. Go ona work day I'm sure... More

Just off the main road, so an easy stop. We did a short, but very informative private tour with one of the managers. No charge, but we did tip. Very interesting that the essential difference between their green and black tea is just a short fermentation period. The entire process from leaf to finish is hours and the process (and... More

The tour was informative and afterwards we were served tea in the pleasant cafe area. It was a good place to buy attractively wrapped gifts and the prices were reasonable.

stopped over at bluefield tea factory on the way to our hotel. a lady showed us around the tea factory for free (we tipped her 1000 rupees), which was very interesting. and you get a complimentary tea after the tour. great quick stop to get souvenirs as well.

The factory tour was interesting, even though our guide wasn't too interested in answering questions. Customer service came when we entered the shop. The dining room was a disappointment; they should stick to tea making.

On our way to Nuwara Eliya , stopped at this lovely place. Staff is very friendly. You can view the tea manufacturing process free of charge. Can buy team from their stall. But they do not force you to buy.

We arrived just after 4pm and the factory had already stopped production for the day! That being said it is a really nice stop cool, green and lush, and we did see some ladies just finishing their tea picking. We did enjoy a cup of tea and there is a good shop to buy some souvenirs.

Overall, this is far more interesting than you would think on face value. OK, so you don't get to pick tea, (who would want to?), but you get a short informative tour through the factory / plant, and learn quite a bit on tea processing. Then it's back to the cafe to sample some of the various styles. I think... More
