A thee factory

Mandatory stop along a journey within Sri Lanka. Had a good English speaking guide for our 5' à 10' tour of the factory. Everything free of charge except the tip.

If you want to buy some regional tea - this is right place, you can also hear some interesting facts about tea plantations and so on in the factoory (for free, just as ta sampling). Nice landscapes on the road.

The short but interesting tour of the tea factory is certainly worth the stop. However, the short walk to the plantations is beautiful and the tea leave pluckers welcome your tiny presents (sic).

It was raining hard when we arrived, straight into the lounge/tea room so beung able to have three different types of tea and then free cakes sure were a treat.

The tour around the 'factory' is free but tip the guide, we were advised SKR 500 by our driver. The tour was interesting and we learnt a bit about tea production. Cup of tea in cafe was not expensive. No real pressure to buy from the shop.

Unfortunately we were here on the day after a public holiday and so the factory was not operating. The tour was interesting but would have been so much better if we had seen the process live. We thought we were going to experience every step from picking the leaves through to drinking the end product, but this is not how... More
