We visited on a Sunday. Most. The factory was shut. The lady guides were pleasant and explained the tea collecting and preparing process. It was interesting to see tea being packed and finally shipped all around the world in large packets . They serve tea and buying from them is not compulsory. The prices I the factory shop are atleast... More

One of the mans here shows you around the factory and gives you step by step information about the process of producing tea including all different qualifications of tea. At the end you get complimentary cup of tea and can buy one of the best quality tea. Tour was for free, in the tea shop you pay a bit extra... More

Bluefield are very organised: we were quickly escorted into the tea factory and the process was explained with photo opportunities. I would have rather the explanations were slower as I felt we were a bit rushed around - but there were lots of visitors. I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get more info on the actual picking process... More

One is spoilt for choice for tea plantations to visit in the hill country of Sri Lanka. There are many around Nuwara Eliya. Bluefield tea gardens is a very popular place for tourists and is deserved of its good reputation. It is situated on the main road from Nuwara Eliya to Kandy in the village called Ramboda. The tea factory... More

There is a choice of tea factories to visit in this area and we chose Bluefield at random. We were not disappointed however we turned up after 4pm when the tea pickers had clocked off! The guide was very good at showing us around and was charming. The whole tour is rounded off with (of course!) with a cup of... More

While on way to Eliya - we dropped at BlueField Tea Garden. We were given a welcome Tea and then a Lady showed us the techniques of Tea Processing. From Tea Leaves to the Final Ho cup of Tea - you get an idea of how things actually happen. Also learnt about different types of teas and gradations in the... More

We visited the Bluefield factory this January. The factory is easy to reach, even by bus, as it is on the main road from Nuwara Eliya to Kandy. We found the factory tour at Bluefield to be slightly more informative compared to other tea factories we visited in Sri Lanka, as they really took us through most production halls in... More

Stopped over for a tea factor visit which was good. After which they gave us some tea for tasting. That's like a lounge with some savouries n cakes for you to buy along side with the tea. We had a beef samosa and a butter cake which was very good. Great stop over on the way to Ella from kandy.

It was good to know how to make tea. The only sad thing is our agent said that there's a free tasting centre and we ordered for green tea then happened to find that there's only a single tea which is of free cost rest of the tea is charged hence please check the cost before going

Great stop if you are in the area or passing by. It was so cool to see the process and the machinery that has been in place for decades to make tea. Even if you are not a tea drinker, the steps involved are really interesting. I highly recommend!! The tour is free as well as a cup of tea... More
