Great selection of Sri Lankan tea. You can smell every tea that you want to buy. We opted for some herbal teas and got a lot of insights about their benefits. We definitely recommend this place.

Really nice small shops with a large variety of tea. The owner is the sweetest and is really knowledgeable. He made us smell all the teas. Prices are really reasonable. I bought more tea from here than I did from a famous plantation!
