Beautiful views. Self guided tour was very short. Tea and other spices available to purchase. I would recommend visiting based on the views alone.

This is a very tiny tea factory located in the mountainous area of the island. Around a small tea plantation. There are only a few workers at the factory. Almost all work is done manually. However, surprisingly, very tasty tea!

The factory tea was closed when we toured the island. However, you can benefit from a lovely short walk through a small part of the tea plantation (watching bats swooping into trees) just 20 m left from the main entrance. Just after the old sign...More

When we reached tea factory it was closed, so we can't get an inside view of it but the location is mesmerizing we have taken beautiful pictures around the campus. It's worth a visit.

We did not go inside the factory. But we took some wonderful pictures of the view from there. And we also bought some nice tea and nutmeg there.

Do one needs to make reservation for the tour, what are the cost of the same and other charges?

No reservation needed for the tour. I was there in May. Tour is self guided. Not much to see. I would skip the tour. They do sell tea which is very good. The view of the coastline alone is worth the stop.
How much is the entry fee?
