The tea factory walk was very good in introduction to tea making, the women were knowledgeable and confident. Great to see that.

Extremely suspicious quality tea we got. After buying 2400₹ worth of goods from factory shop, the packing woman didn’t want to give a bag, instead wanted us to handle 5 different paper bags. Is this management policy or just chingusi of an unhappy employee?

Not a working Tea factory.
The place is in ruins with no machinery of any kind.
There are other better working Tea factories. Don't waste your time here.

Pretty area, guide does a reasonable job of answering questions.
Factory not currently operating other than one small room, upstand tea is mainly sold at auction and processed elsewhere.
Small eucalyptus oil operation, again not convinced it is actually active at present.
Tour finishes with chocolate and tea tasting.
Interesting to try the different types, but they haven't convinced me to swap from my current type/brand

One of the Touristy things to do in Conoor. The factory is run down and visit to essential oil distillery and chocolate shack are also pretty average. Plantation looks pretty and you can get some stock touristy type clicks done here!

Went to the highlands factory at 11 am. Main tea factory was under renovation, I was told , although checking reviews dated back to 2017 people were writing abt non functional tea factory. So you can guess the main tea factory will be under Renovation until the cows come home. The guide seemed like a nice chap who wanted only what i thought of as the proper tip for his services, no more. We tasted some tea and mango choc, white choc. But be beware of buying the stuff from the shop below. After leaving the place i tried some choclates and true to my fears they tasted horrible. Its like they were made with some very low quailty butter or likes. I had to spit out the choc in my mouth. A rs 20 dairy milk / milkybar is a far better choice. So having spent more than 1000 bucks on those stupid chocolate boxes i was cursing myself.

Our excellent guide was very knowledgable about the whole process of preparing different types of tea & chai. All the processes were underway when we visited in January. At the end of the trip you can try each kind and take a look at essential oil and chocolate production. I came away with a deep appreciation of the work involved in our daily cuppa!

This tea garden is on a hill top. You get a beautiful view of the terrain and a golf course down below. The factory visit is quite interesting if you are keen to know how the different types of teas are processed. Our bad luck that they were not operational. The guides were good and their services were voluntary.
All in all a good trip

The factory allows visitors to go through the tea making process and also has a sales counter from where we can buy the chosen flavours of tea

Most of the factory was shut down for maintenance. However the green tea unit was partially open. We were taken in batches and shown green tea processing. They have a huge tea garden attached to the factory. Very beautiful landscaping and scenic. They have a mini Essential Oil and Chocolate making unit. Very educative tour overall.
