“Basic tour, good tea and cake”

Embilmeegama Tea Factory
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Having been to a tea factory in Kerala, the tour of this factory was quick and basic by comparison, but still gave insight into the tea making process for those who haven't heard before. They have an excellent tea sampling room and the chocolate cake was very good. All sorts of top quality tea for sale, some of it appears very expensive but still less than the same in UK

On 151, Colombo Road, in Pilimathalawa, you'll discover the interesting "Embilmeegama Tea Factory". A typical Sri Lankan tea factory, very well organized, with a guided tour of its premises, that shows the different stages in tea production. After visiting the factory, you'll be invited to a tea degustation served by the factory's guide herself. As a final step, you'll will end at a lovely tea shop, where their exquisite teas are on sale at very reasonable prices. A good opportunity to buy those small gifts that we have always to bring home. Important to remark that at any moment we felt they were putting any kind of pressure on us to buy their products. Besides that, after a tiring car trip from Colombo to Kandy or Negombo, stopping at Embilmeegama may signify a lovely time to get out of the car, stretch your body, go to the toilets (very clean) and have some tea. It was, indeed, a refreshing pause on our way to the Sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic. Enjoy!
