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

A nice place to stop to break up the journey. Some interesting things to learn about tea and a nice cup of tea when you finish. There is no cost & they have a pretty good selection of tea's to purchase in their shop.

I've heard of tea plantations/factories where you get to pick tea, see it all being processed and learn about the history of tea in the country. This tour is not one of them. We got rushed through the factory (the processing plant was empty as processing is done in the morning, and we were there in the afternoon) and then... More

Tour was short but very interesting and informative. There was no charge but we gave the tour guide a small tip, which he was thankful for. Free cup of tea included. Beautiful spot with lovely views. No pressure to buy. Playground for kids while parents enjoy a cuppa!

Loved the guided tour of the Tea Factory by a very well conversant staff. The Tea & cakes at the tea museum are a great refreshment. Great collection of teas available for gifting at the Souvenir Shop!

Stop here for a free 15-20 min tour! The tour is very informative and will take you through a beautiful tea factory that was built in the 1900s - still operating with original machinery. Tour staff are very friendly and kind. We were not asked to buy tea or products - they end the tour with a cup of tea... More

The guide was nice and we got a free tea drink at the end of the tour. I enjoyed learning about the process of tea processing and the gift shop had a good selection of teas to take home.

They claim to be the oldest tea factory still running in the region. We saw a machine which dates back to the 18th century. A friendly staff accompanied us, she was polite and patiently explained all our doubts and showed the process involved in tea making.

Please don't buy tea from here, lots of cheaper places in Nuwara Eliya. Was nice to see the tea making process, all machines are shut though.
