  • We visited this Damro branded tea plantation and factory as part of touring the very productive tea growing region around Nuwara Eliya. The tour of the tea factory was interesting but far too short an...  more »
  • This stop in this tea factory programmed by ASIA is a total disappointment. The tour begins with a remote approach to tea pickers that we cannot approach. Only a relatively old lady dares to visibly brave a kind of forbidden by approaching our group to miserably reach out. A child will join her to get candy and pens. That's the way it is and there's nothing the guide can do about it. This world is totally inaccessible to us and it is not permissible for us to walk in the fields where a real omerta is cultivated. It is true that the working conditions are very difficult (sloping terrain, snakes of all kinds and fluctuating climatic conditions) to allow each picker to collect at least 5 euros per day for a collection of at least 18 Kilos of these precious leaves. The visit of the factory is set at the pace of the race and does not allow to discover all the stages of production. You discover little and you don't understand anything. Tasting tea comes down to a cup of PEKOE tea. There is no opportunity to taste the different teas and understand the subtleties. Only trade seems to be the religion of the place. For all these good reasons, we recommend that you do not stop at this factory.
