About Tea Museum, Kandy
An essential stop on any Sri Lankan tea tour, this museum occupies the 1925-vintage Hanthana Tea Factory, 4km south of Kandy on the Hanthana road. Abandoned for over a decade, it was refurbished by the Sri Lanka Tea Board and the Planters’ Association of Sri Lanka.
The Ceylon Tea Museum at Hantane, three kilometres from Kandy city is served by a motorable road that circles the museum tourist coaches. This four storeyed museum consists exhibits very old items of machinery used in tea brewing, a library and an auditorium with facilities for audio visual presentations. The third floor is allocated to tea sales outlets, where a selection of Sri Lanka's fine tea is available.
A panoramic view of the Kandy town surrounded by the beautiful Hunasgiriya, Knuckles Range and the Matale range of hills can be viewed through a telescope mounted on the fourth floor.
The grounds surrounding the Tea Museum are to be landscaped with different varieties of teas. Kandy is a mandatory stop virtually on every tourist's itinerary and the location of the Ceylon Tea Museum at Hantane enhances the attraction of the hill country to visitors.

Rewarding experience to spend an hour exploring the history and production processes of tea manufacturing in Sri Lanka. Clean and well presented over four floors with free tasting at the conclusion of the private tour. Staff are friendly and it costs 800 pp.
Nice quiet environment. A lot of history to read. The tea shop serves a quality cup of tea.
Interesting to learn a few things about tea and the process of making tea. The stores are very expensive there. I would recommend you to purchase your tea in the Kandy.
A must Visit for any tea lover. You can learn whole tea process with all kind of machinary available in display. There are many tea shops available and you can enjoy a nice cup of tea too at the end.
