Great guide who explained everything clearly and concisely. Sixpacks of tea seem expensive at 2000 rupees but each pack of tea is 125g for just under £1.50 so good value really for a class product. Teaworkers were striking in Nuwara Eliya while we were there....More

Visited the tea factory and guided by the volunteer, about how the tea processing takes place ,step by step. Took about 25 minutes to finish the session. Then we were all served, crystal clear golden tea, aromatic and refreshing. Bought some tea packs also.

Chose the Pedro tea factory if you are wanting an authentic experience. Only 200 rupee per person for a guided tour with tea sample at the end.

Average place to see tea garden, little bit of history of tea industry in Sri Lankan hill country. You could walk down the tea bushes. You can buy tea and refresh yourself with a nice and warm cup of tea.

A charming tea factory. We did a factory tour followed by a cup of tea then we were able to wander through the nearby slopes watching the women pick tea. The factory was very interesting and so clean.

I would say don’t risk after late afternoon. They use the workers to do the tours and they start shifts I think after that.
