  • Newburgh Tea Facory is located a few km from Ella along the road towards Balleketuwa, 300-400 Rs by tuk-tuk. The factory takes its tea leaves from Newburgh Estate and Namunukula range and has a reputation for producing the best green tea in Sri Lanka (but of course it is in advertising). The factory was built in 1903 and already produced traditional black tea for more than 100 years. 2009 equipment was modernized and went over to making green tea under the English brand 15 P/Finlay, annually teaches it to be about 300 000 kg. It requires both feet, hair, and mouth guard before you get to walk around and see the production: Heating in furnaces to prevent the fermentation that gives us the black tea, rolling between the rollers so that the leaves breaks up into smaller parts and cellsafterna unleash, drying, sorting After leaf size and finally packaging in bags. Photography is not permitted during the tour, but you get to try a cup of green tea. On my last visit were the guided tour, which cost 500 Rs, a vice manager and we had a good and nice review. PS. we were at the plant early, already at nine, and got a good impression before production got started for the day and thus did not have the noise from the machines.

This guide (15 minutes) was very interesting for us - photos were allowed to be made not in the production halls. We also have paid 500 rupees per person and found the's close ok end with the price of tea tasting absolutely. Getting an insight into the tea production and the individual steps in any case.
