    Small tea plantation, which can be visited without effort. First, it is walking through the orchard to the tea on the terrace, then to the visit to the tea factory, and finally there is a well organized, beautifully presented, infusions. The offered tea can be, purchased locally however to excessive prices. A small museum offers insight into the migration of peoples from India to Sri Lanka and shows various objects and images from the past. Also riding excursions can be booked (we didn't).

    Tea is the second most popular beverage in the world. Herman's is the unique Virgin White tea available. One of the world's rarest and most expensive teas. Virgin white tea antioxidants consists of approximately 11%, is very lovely and good wholesome. Whether it is worth its price, must decide every Tea lover himself. Anyway, we enjoyed it.
