  • Excellent tea museum give insight to production of tea in 19th century & till now. The person explained everything in detail very professionally with help of oldest machines. Had a chance to taste various tea & bought some tea bags as well. Worth a visit. Must visit when you are in Kandy.
  • Nice place, its a Tea factory which has now been converted to a Tea museum. The difference being that it has some very old machinery and stuff dating back to 1880's. There are some 4 to 5 floors and each floor has something to offer. On the top floor is the tea shop and when you reach there, they offer you a hot cup of black tea. My daughter is a tea lover and she enjoyed the visit.
