This tea factory is very interesting. The guide tour in English about tea processing takes about 20 minutes. Various teas can be purchased at the end of the tour. Unfortunately, there is no tasting.

I have been at Dambethenna tea factory last year with one of my friends. According to them this is the largest functioning tea factory in Sri Lanka. They provide a guide (either English or Sinhala speaking) for tour through the factory. This factory is four storied building and still well functioning. We got a clear idea about tea production at the end of the tour. It is a worth to visit there on your way to Lipton's Seat. Unfortunately photographs are not allowed.

The tour itself was ok, but rather quick (took around 20 min) and did not include tea tasting. The guide told us about different tea making processes, tea types and in the end of the tour advertised teas sold on their shop. I was really excited to visit tea factory, which was built by Lipton himself, but knowing this information I would have rather picked some other tea factory with more extent program :)

Amazing to see how the tea is made! It costs 250rs per person and you get a guide! (You cant take photos inside) The Factory is connected with Rain Forrest Alliance, they had built hospitals and schools. According to our tuktuk driver they where also building new houses for the workers!
