A Visit to a Tea Factory

Depending on where you stay in the Hill Country, we can arrange an experience to visit a Tea Factory to see how these green leaves end up on your breakfast table. Two of the best are the Pedro Tea Factory or Bluefield Tea Gardens, very close to Nuwara Eliya or the Mackwoods Labookellie Tea Centre on the road to Kotmale.
