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.

When we knew this was included on our tour it was a case of "oh no not a tea factory" but it was so worth the visit. We were taken around by a lovely young lady and all the processes explained and then we could actually taste the tea (the gold and silver tea is amazing and tastes nothing like... More

I've been to Sri Lanka twice so this was actually my second tea plantation visit so unfortunately I was in 'comparison' mode. (The last time I visited Glenloch) The tour of the factory was good and the lady who took us round was very informative, helpful and nice. It was a shame you can't take pictures at this one... It...

A nice quick tour with a very reasonably priced meal to be had afterwards over a nice cup of tea. Eat lunch here and do not be swayed to go to a tourist trap nearby like the Tea Bush which has bad, expensive food for lunch.
