The centuries old single estate tea from Oak Ray Tea Bush show room museum is located near Ramboda water falls right on the main road from Kandy to Newerelia.

The showroom is spacious, comfortable and very well stocked with a large variety of single estate tea.

The quality of the single estate tea is very good. The smiling sales staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.

A selection of fresh garden tea in well arranged racks is a tea lover's delight.

The prices of the tea varietal is also reasonable.

One can also taste the wide variety of single estate tea freshly brewed before deciding on the varietal of tea they plan to purchase.

Downstairs is a tea museum where an entire array of centuries old tea machinery are displayed.

The travel weary visitor can also break their long journey by checking in at the hotel of the same name run by the group.

Recommended for the tea afficiando.

We had heard a lot about this tea factory. Unfortunately we visited it on a Saturday, the factory was shut and the site was very busy with visitors. Our guide rushed us through the silent factory and was not very informative or helpful with the questions that we asked her. Her English was not very good and she seemed to be hell bent on getting us up to the tasting and shop area, it was all very rushed and the tea was not cheap. I would not recommend this place, we passed numerous other tea factories in the area, so it might be worthwhile try other ones if you want to visit a tea factory.

We were so ready to buy some tea!!!! And our tour had been great, just the right length and factually interesting. Loved the tea tasting, but then the products disappointed. As we were buying the tea for gifts we opted for the tea that came in pretty labelled bags. But after a long wait it transpired they’d run out of bags and just wanted to put everything in Earl grey bags- « no thank you ». We rethought our order to come up with a contingency plan, but it really was a shame that we couldn’t get what was originally on offer. I was also initially surprised that we couldn’t see any tea plantation tiers from here, although we then passed hundreds on our way to ramboda falls.

The tea factory is right next to the hotel. The girl who showed us around was excellent in her presentation and presented the tour very well.
At the end we had some fresh tea and bought some too. However the pricing is very high compared to alot of the tea places. Definitely a must visit if you are passing by.

This was a very interesting lesson on Tea processing and packaging. The museum was very educational and informative. Then after your tour you go upstairs to the shop and sample teas and shop. Great fun and good for the entire family.

Neat place to break the road trip. Who knew there was so much to learn about tea. The shop was well appointed but a little expensive. Recommended
