  • Nice place. You should not only visit the factory, but also go to plantation and take pics with tea pickers. It is quit difficult to get up there, but do it, great emotions.
  • A brief but interesting free tour through an old tea factory with an awesome strong tea aroma all round. Plus you get a free cup of tea at the end of it. 32rupees on the bus from Nuwara Eliya definitely worth a quick trip
