Glenloch Tea Factory, Sri Lanka
(3.3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The tea is of course excellent, visiting phony and recited to not say anonnee by a young girl... short enough classic but what I found petty it is making me pay for the meal of the driver who's had led us, while it is customary to integrate it into the price of the menus, as it was found everywhere else. Mentality of punk that spoils the impression we have of the country

We were served more quality of tea on the terrace overlooking the hills. Is present to the store where you can buy tea produced in the factory .... try it is yummy!!

  • 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
