  • A small documentary in projector is shown first. Next is the demo of the factory. A person tells everything about tea, from how to plant to how is the plantations done, different tea and right way to prepare tea. Then you can buy different tea and have it there as well. Worth the 150 Rs we spend there. 1.5 hours can be spent easily.
  • See how the tea is made. Buy all forms of tea, artifacts and enjoy the tea garden landscape. Get to know about the right way to use green tea and enjoy its benefits. You have to be attentive through the 5 minute very interesting lecture.
  • Utter waste. Never visit and waste your money. Entry ticket price is 125 per person. I donno what's there to take entry ticket. One aged person explains why you need tea and blah blah. Just one machine which shows how tea powder comes from leaves. You can find the same in many YouTube videos. Better to avoid. Waste of time.
  • Lot of information regarding tea processing. You can go through the origin of tea estate through video. You can see the tea making process. Entry fee for adult is Rs125 which is not worth it. Monday is closed. Ample parking space. 9am to 5pm running time.
  • 120 bucks for a video and a speech is too much to ask for... They didn't even explain the tea making process in detail.. I have taken tea factory visits at couple of other places when they explained all the process in detail and was much cheaper...
