Glenloch Tea Factory, Sri Lanka

(300+ reviews on the web)
Farm
See how locals produce one of the most widely consumed drinks at Glenloch Tea Factory. The factory had humble beginnings, but over time it has put Sri Lanka on the map as the fourth-largest producer of tea in the world. One of its founders was Sir Thomas Lipton, a name widely recognized on tea boxes, who purchased a tea estate and factory in the late 19th century. Enjoy the beautiful landscape and temperate climate, which offers excellent conditions for growing quality tea leaves. Take a 15-20 minute guided tour to learn how a leaf becomes a beverage; afterwards you can purchase boxes of tea as a souvenir or gift.

  • Goods here in the context of our private tour. There's a guided tour of the factory where a lot was declared. Indeed in German. We did not expect that. Afterwards, you can try also tea. A great thing

  • I was happy to see this tea factory I knew. The factory is very beautiful, with great old machines, we understand the path until the cups tea leaves. The guide explained the process well. The employees working there are smiling and get easily caught in photos. Then comes the passage of tasting and there a bit of disappointment, teas so-called all different are to my taste very close to each other. The store offers so tea but I appreciated a lot more another factory...

  • Glenloch is 2 or 3 hours drive from Kandy but it is well worth the journey if, like me, you have never seen a tea plantation before. En route you pass through interesting countryside including tea gro...  more »

  • A very short tour. It was over before you knew it. A little bit more history would have helped.
  • Staff r great but products r over priced
  • Worker explained the steps of making all kind of teas we tasted all and it has a historical machines. Nice place to purchase a Srilanka tea.
  • Had a tour of the tea plantation, was very good, girl explained everything very nicely. Bought some tea from the factory too
  • Not the best place in Sri Lanka. Very short excursion and they give tru only 1 sort of tea. With compare to Virgin Tea Factory, whre you can taste all sorts of tea, glenloch losing it all. But it reside in good way from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya. I recommend to going to tea plantation by yourself, there is many good views, that compensate not best factory
