  • If you have 500 Rupees to spare, it's a nice place to visit. You have a look on the different stage of production and see the worker doing various stuff. The visit felt a bit rushed and not well prepared. No tea tasting at the end. Too expensive for what it is.
  • Interesting tour. 500 rubis. Didn't get to try any tea meanwhile.
  • I liked the place and factory, but tour was done with a rush and guide had quite bad English as it comes to pronounciation. He constantly talked to staff in local language during visit, had a phone call and the he didn't finish the tour and send other guy to finish it, which ended up very quickly. No tea tasting..moreover we came day after their holiday thai pong so there was almost no people and no production.
  • Guest s can see processing tea and buy high quality tea products.
  • Not bad place if you want to see how is tea made. Price 500 rps.
