“Tea quicky”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is where they have assembled the memorablia of 150 years of tea in Munnar. It could have been a great experience, but the place is poorly organized and crowded. The lecture on how tea is made is inaudible and the tea factory itself is too small to give an idea of the complexity of the process. It needs to be spaced out more and visitors regulated.

“Interesting tour”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We found the Museum and the film interesting and informative. The Tea Factory is old, but you get the idea of how it all worked. The guide was wonderful and really interacted with the children. Keeping them to the front and showing them extra little things. A sample drink of tea was appreciated.

“go on the tour, drink the tea, buy the book.”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

The Tea Museum is a bit tattered and old - it has some interesting choices of what to label (a sundial?) and what to highlight (1980s adding machines?) - but it is in the middle of the beautiful Munwar tea area, the film (in room three- which desperately needs a sign that says: film in progress so that people stop opening the door and walking in - it also needs sign that says:in English only so that people stop coming in and walking out) is worth the wait...interesting.

The self guided walk through a tea processing area needs some saftey features (if you are traveling with small children note that there are unguarded conveyor belts and other machinery) - but I had never seen anything like it before. The man who gives a bored bullhorn speech upstairs on types of tea is unintelligible by even the best "understanders of strong Indian accents" in our group - so....

buy the little book after you do the walk.

NOTE: Toilets are out of the museum and cost 2rp.
