Glenloch Tea Factory, Sri Lanka

3.3
#57 of 368 in Outdoors in Sri Lanka
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.

    Great place! Real tea factory. Not modern but old and native. Is it expensive here? Sure! But it's not easy to get great tea in your local store. For people who really understand what good tea should be.
