  • Not a very good experience specially the factory floor as its a dummy floor. More focus is on sales. Overall will not recommend it.  more »

  • I did expect that there would be some demo on tea dust making process, but not so. They charges a bit high for viewing the museum. There is a person who explains nicely about making tea (especially green tea) and history of tea plants. Its worth visiting once.
  • Good place to visit. After visiting this place you will get to know the importance of green tea. Tea power making procedure is illustrated clearly .Museum is clean and worth a visit. But the entry ticket is slightly high.
  • I was very excited to visit this Tea Museum because Tea is a very famous product of Munnar. It turned out to be a very good experience. Seeing the history of Tea plantations...very old typewriters and calculators and communication machines before the invention of Mobile phones. Gave a good knowledge to me.
  • Superb place. It is a must visit if you go to Munnar. The place is very nice, and you can see a very nice video about the history of KDHP. You can also see a demonstration on how tea is made. And if you want to have tea, you can have tea at a place right next to that area, and you can buy tea products and souvenir coins as well. It is awesome and you won't feel like leaving the place until you have to.
  • Something to be seen by every Visitor. Sale section is great. Audio Visual section gives a fair knowledge of tea history. And the conducted tour in the factory is a good learning
