I was expecting an in depth demonstration of tea making. What we actually got was quickly shuffled around a tea factory where not everything was currently being done. In places it was hard to hear what the guide was saying due to machinery noise. It was, however, still interesting to see what happens in a tea factory. The shop has... More

As a tea lover, I really enjoyed our tour in Bluefield tea gardens. Despite being short, we learned a lot about tea production and the difference between the various tea types and leafs. Thanks to that trip, now i know how to buy and prepare a good cup of tea.

Had a very informative tour of factory which lasted about 45 minutes. Then got a complimentary tea however was very weak. Operates on a tip only basis so doesn't have to be expensive. Nice gift shop where you can buy tea.

It's a long way to go for a short visit but very scenic and informative. It can be quite cold and wet on the tuk tuk ride so be prepared but well worth the beautiful vistas.

We were given a free tour by an informative and smart young lady who spoke good english. The tour was short and less informative than other planation tours I've been on and was out of the factory within 5minutes. There was a free cup of tea at the end in the cafe, this was a great cup of tea and... More

the taste of the tea provided complimentary was amazing....... the guide was very informative, he provided in a detailed manner of how the tea was made. We were able to see some people picking the leaves as well. With the great taste of the tea, we purchased some tea from the shop near the factory site.

Bluefield is a very big factory. Our guide was amazing and he had alot of knowledge about tea. He answered all kinds of questions and was very sweet. Knowing the history of tea and the length it takes to have that cup early in the morning was great to know. I loved the machines that are used to produce tea.... More

The tour inside the tea factory gives you an insight as to what exactly goes into making tea!! Different flavours of authentic Srilankan tea is available in the store next to the factory. The factory also gives you a fantastic view of the tea estate.Worth visiting!

It is a beautiful place. Location is very scenic . And we get to see in the factory the process of turning raw tea leaves into the tea powder that we know. Followed by a sampling of their famous teas. There is also a shop where you can buy a wide selection of their teas.
