Pedro Tea Factory , Nuwara Eliya

3.8
#4 of 36 in Things to do in Nuwara Eliya
Take a guided tour through Pedro Tea Factory and wander around the plantation fields. Built in 1885, the factory still holds some of its original machinery, although all of the production processes take place at night, meaning you can't see them in action. Nevertheless, you can learn a lot about the history of the factory, the methods used to produce the tea, and, of course, sample some fine tea products at the end. Rest at the onsite cafe and take pictures of the area's lush green landscape.

    Positive: short and clear tour. Not positive: not allowed to take photos due to fear of negative publicity... Tea room is outdated and office-like. Factory is like it was in the 60's, which is fine depending on standards. Nice tourguide
