  • Wow good place to learn about tea history. They explain it very well. U can have a nice cup of tea as well. And can buy good quality tea as well for a discounted price. Very close from Kandy city.
  • * Rooms are ok * Washrooms will not meet the expected level * Staff & manager are good customer friendly individuals. * Parking facility available but better confirm prior to the booking since parking space is limited
  • An interesting place to visit. They have old machines used in the process of making tea and the process is clearly explained both by the guide and information boards. Some of the photographic displays are a bit tatty. Nice cup of tea to finish and a decent gift shop.
  • This is the small food outlet passing two bends from tea museaum .. such a nice place .
  • Feel you have time travel back to 200 years. Well maintaining and can learn more about Sri Lankan tea history
