We were shown round and had explained the process of growing, harvesting and manufacturing tea. This included the special 'virgin white tea' which was made from the tiny shoots of the palnts cut by women dressed from head to toe in white and only from this plantation.
Then it was to the planters bungalow for two cups of tea plus cake.
Following this we walked down to the factory to see the manufacturing process. The vast majority of workers were female operating a mix of machines nearly 150 years old and modern ones grading the tea by colour.
Lastly the musem where they had a small exhibition plus all the 27 teas they make to taste and if you like buy. There was no hard sell but also no haggling as it was all fixed price.
An interesting experience to see the whole process of making tea and taste the whole range
