  • Great factory trip with whole explanation of producing tea and nice degustation of different types of tea. Little cost and big amount of knowleage. Old nice factory ! Recommend !
  • The Factory is a bit outside of Ella town but easy to walk. When we arrived the manager told us there is no production today. But he showed us around and showed us the basics of the tea production. It was very interesting too see how black tea is made.
  • Great tour worth visiting! 15 minutes from Ella. The manager showed us all steps of the tea production. Eventhough, some parts of production were closed for that day, he switched on the machine to explain the proscess.
  • Great tour but the guide talked too fast for most of it
  • Informative tours on green tea mak8ng
