  • Quite a quick tour - here's a tea bush - this is what we pick and then straight inside to see some machinery in operation where the tea making process was explained. The tour did seem very rushed unti...  more »
  • This Center offers a tour of the tea factory (located in the middle of plantations - very nice). The visits are free, and are in a group with a guide of the factory. It sometimes takes a bit to make a guide available. The guides speak English. The visit is very short: 10 min max. We see machines, more or less far. There are also explanatory panels. Possibility of on-site dining. Parking. Shop.

  • Superb scenery and a very quick but informative tour. We enjoyed it. We had a lovely cup of tea at the end.

  • 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
