  • Courteous staff, showed how tea is processed. Explained the difference between various variety of teas. They also have eucalyptus oil extraction unit. One gets to taste variety of teas at their sales outlet. Tea, spices and essential oils are available for sale here. Interesting place!
  • We visited the highfield tea factory on 8th of August 2016. They did not take us for a tour also the factory was in maintenance so we were not able to see anything. We puchased some of tea they have but they just sell us without any good information. .etc.
  • They provide free guides and we had the good fortune to meet James who gave excellent information of tea and the tea making process. Educative and also one gets to buy some premium stock from the factory store
  • Visit this factory to understand how tea powder is processed. You can also taste various tea flavors in the nearby shop. They give little quantity of all tea flavors for free. You will also get tea powders to buy.
  • Lovely tea factory. Staff is very courteous and show you around the factory. You can enter the tea gardens and click photos in the local outfit. Has a sales counter for local spices and variety of teas.
