Tea-drinkers, listen up – this is the tour for you. As any tea drinker will know, Ceylon tea is up there with the best – and, luckily for you, it’s produced in Sri Lanka. On this day-long trip, you’ll get to visit a working Sri Lankan tea plantation. Your guide will explain and demonstrate the art of tea leaf plucking, before taking you to a tea factory. Sri Lanka is the third-biggest producer of tea in the world and, in the factory, you’ll find out more about the manufacturing process, and how the tea quality is graded. After your tour, you can sit down with a steaming cup of Ceylon tea – it’ll be the best cuppa of your life.
Just so you know, your journey time to and from the excursion is approximately one and a half hours each way and can be bumpy on the roads around the tea plantation. Also, wearing mosquito repellent is recommended.
