  • This tour doesn't take long but it's very interesting. The highlight is the tea tasting at the end. Their tea is stunning & we stocked up so we could take plenty home. 
  • 140 years tradition. Prince Charles has visited here. Very friendly staffs. Good quality Sri Lankan black & green tea can be purchased.

  • 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
  • They serve the best of sri Lankan tea and you can have piece of chocolate cake.. very reasonable prices.. Actually it was very cheap...
  • One of the best psce to visit. Nice view. We can by best srilankan natural tea. Drink tea.
  • The best tea cafe in Sri Lanka
