Well I didn't know much about tea making process and whether they buy the tea in etc per of previous reviews. I enjoyed the factory and the information provided about the process and the machinery. It's all geared up for tourists, let's face it. Disappointed in that we were only given one cup of tea and not several to sample... More

After reading negative reviews of labookellie tea estate being a tourist trap we asked our driver to stop here instead. This place was far from a tourist trap. A lovely lady showed us around the factory and was very informative. At the end she didn't want any money. We then got given a free cup of tea and I had... More

Our tour lady who was lovely and very patient. She explained to us about different tea and how to process them. There are more than one tea factory, but this one has really nice tea and reasonable price. After the tour to the factory, they let you taste the tea for free.

This tea factory is conveniently located on the way from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya. It has good restaurant for lunch but factory itself is not so much interesting visit, Glenloch Tea factory (another tourist tea factory) is much more interesting inside. The really bad point (and this is valid for Glenloch too) is the tea. It's simply poor. This tea... More
