Able to taste the different teas and were explained to us. The staff were not pushy unlike Store-field tea factory. The price of tea was also very reasonable. Not a tourist trap. Would definitely recommend

Informative tour around the tea factory followed by a cup of tea. No pressure to buy though we did buy a few things. Not sure how the price compares by Sri Lankan standards but it was reasonable compared with Australian tea.

This road side factory was interesting enough but is a tourist set up basically. You get a bad English tour (our guide gave up with nerves) then a cup of tea and a chance to buy. It was fine to see though.
