Sri Lankan owned, visit here and your putting money back into the Sri Lankan tea fields rather than privately owned ones. Great tour of how tea is made. Complimentary tea after tour. Photos of surrounding area. Lovely gift shop. Sad that a lot of the tea hills have been privately brought out and are no longer owned by Sri Lankan... More

I don't really have any other tea plantations to compare to although it seems pretty typical from what I hear. The girl that showed me around had her 'memorized' spiel which was quite informative and she was able to answer some simple additional questions. Her English was acceptable. Not a bad way to spend a half hour to break up... More

Nice factory and nice tea shop - but the only place where we need to pay after tea tasting - and after we buy a tea. I hope, it will be nice. The staff is not so English speaking.

The only issue is when they let you go for a walk around the estate (and they do warn you) retired tea pickers, tea pickers and... More

This you may pass on the way to NUwara eliya from Kotmale. Gives you a very detailed representation about old day tea manufacturing process. Get a guide from the front office, they are very informative for a small buck. Enjoy the tea ride

Due to the limited days we were in Nuwara Eliya; we ended up at the Bluefields Tea Gardens on a Sunday which meant the Factory was deserted. The (free) tour was pretty good thanks to the wonderful guide who was willing to answer any question we had. The store next door was great as well with a wide variety of... More
