Do not go there if you don’t hire a car in bad weather or on a rainy day. It’s in the middle of nowhere!!!! You can take the 14th bus from the bus station, but after half an hour travelling on very steep and wild...More

The tea factory was interesting to see but don't run out of your way to visit if you don't have time or are thinking of doing something else instead. The admission was cheap but takes about ten minutes to walk through everything. You are also...More

Just a few minutes drive from the Mission Lodge. Unfortunately the tea factory is closed till the end of May. We hung around the area though which was worth it due to the pretty views and serenity of surrounding nature.

We drove down the very winding road after a visit to the Mission Lodge lookout. Feeling a little jittery from holding on tightly as we edged along, we were looking forward to a visit to the Tea Factory. However, it is closed for the next...More

Only open from Monday to Friday to tour the tea factory. The garden is open at weekends so you can see the views from the garden. The factory, however, is closed. Offers simple local tea in orange, mint ,lemon, vanilla and cinnamon flavours

The road to this factory from town reminds me of Munnar in Kerala, India. A perfect hill station with curvy roads. A nice place with good view of many beaches and islands. The tea factory is very small with 3 machines in each section. You...More

It is a nice small tea factory to visit, but is closed during the weekends. Yet you can go inside to walk around the buildings. Provides you with great views of the sea at a higher elevation.

Very small factory with few staff standing as a small museum as well. There is a shop outside of factory with millions of different teas!

A very small factory with a obligatory guided tour was worth the trip. The tour costs 25 Rp and shows the process of tea making and some of the history of the site. View from the factory is great!

No reservation needed for the tour. I was there in May. Tour is self guided. Not much to see. I would skip the tour. They do sell tea which is very good. The view of the coastline alone is worth the stop.
