“Average..”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Entry ticket for an Adult was 75 rs.. which I feel little costly for what they have inside.. Ooty had a best one and the ticket was only 15 rs. they had set up a portion of Tea plants to take photos between them.. and then again. its bit crowded in season times...

“Mini Factory But Not the Real Stuff”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

It is a small miniature factory does not give feeling of real factory. The 10 minute talk about how tea is processed was good and informative.

“Solid scope to pep it up!”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

First impression itself is shabby! They ask you to collect your complimentary tea before entering the museum. The tea that you get is from the machine you usually have in your workplace... and I had to just throw that away.... As you enter the cramped museum... You quickly realise that it's just waste of time! But yes, you gain some knowledge of how tea is made. Hope Tata's show the way by building something like what Napa Valley is for wine...

“No Indian should go”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

This place would have been good if not for the guy who delivers a sermon at the beginning of your tour.. he focuses on how Indians are idiots and good for nothing specially due to the way they drink their tea and how Chinese and Japanese deserve a higher place in the history of this planet for the way they do.

Only take away from that humiliating talk was some knowledge about the benefits of tea and how to make the green tea the right way.. and it works.. so thanks to him for that.. but seriously STOP BASHING INDIANS !! Its in real bad taste. Dun think anyone gets humiliated in their own country like we do in our own at times. I am disgusted to the core specially when he himself serves the worst machine made Indian style masala tea.

“Not worth the time or effort.”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Display wasn't very interesting - the free tea was dreadful - from a machine. Surely this is a place where good tea should be served (and then sold!).
