Fantastic little trip. Enjoy having a walk around the plantation and seeing how the process of the tea making takes place. Free guided tour and then buy some tea at the shop. Worth the trip.

Another tea estate we thought but we were really glad we decided to come here. You are taken by tuk tuk and given an individual tour of the plantation and given a great cup of tea along the way. You then go tothe factory where you can see, touch and smell the tea making process which was fascinating. You also learn about the Virgin White Tea which this estate is famous for. There was a shop at the end but there was nopressure to buy anything. There were numerous teas available for taste testing, which we did, and ended up buying some , including the Virgin White Tea. We also bought a great souvenir inthe form of a book called The Suicide Club which is the story of the founder, and thattoo was very enjoyable.

Although this is a free place to visit, it is not useful to visit there. 1) Actually this is situated in Down South, therefore the climate is not good for a quality product. - the best Ceylon tea we can found in Hill country. 2) If you visit here you can get an actual experience of a real tea factory. This place will mislead you and will give wrong information. 3) When comparing the price with the best tea in Sri Lanka, this is very expensive. 4) Also the staff is not friendly. 5) Finally I'm saying this is kind of a scam that will mislead you.

This was a unique experience! The gentleman who welcomed us asked where are we from and then greeted us and told us to follow him in our own language! Such a nice man, he was making an effort to learn words in all kind of languages. The estate is so beautiful, besides the tea we saw rubber tree, pepper plant. They served us with tea and cookies, showed old equipment, it was relaxing and educational.

We arrived early (no booking) in the morning and was welcomed and informed of the specialty of the plantage the White Virgin. Then another guide took us around the plantage telling us about the different teas, how they grow and are picked. Me and my husband were the only guests. On the terrace to a beautiful house we were served oolong tea and cake for free. We were introduced to the manufacturing in the factory and then the tea tasting of 40 different types! Very interesting! You don’t have to buy the tea from the shop they have shipping through their website. Before you leave you donate a voluntary sum, no individual tip is allowed. It was a great experience- lot to see and learn, so nice breathing fresh air and walking in the lush plantation. Recommended!
