About Kannan Devan Tea Museum, Munnar

It is difficult to impossible to describe the flavour of tea. That's why all tea explanations are comparative matters. But does that mean that you can’t describe tea? No, you should in fact strive harder to describe it as people have strived for ages. Drink tea, drink lots of it. Many of us taste tea every day. Take the time to truly discover each of the flavours that meet our palette. The intricacy of flavour that comes with high quality tea approaches the complexity of a robust wine. Unravel the incredible variety of tastes, textures and aromas of your favourite teas. It is a fun way to enjoy the adventure of drinking teas that come from all over the world.

Kannan Devan Tea Museum, situated at Nullatanni estate in Munnar, is the first tea museum of its kind in the country. The museum portrays the origin and growth of century-old tea plantation.

Kannan Devan Tea Museum, Munnar Reviews

  • A small documentary in projector is shown first. Next is the demo of the factory. A person tells everything about tea, from how to plant to how is the plantations done, different tea and right way to prepare tea. Then you can buy different tea and have it there as well. Worth the 150 Rs we spend there. 1.5 hours can be spent easily.

  • See how the tea is made. Buy all forms of tea, artifacts and enjoy the tea garden landscape. Get to know about the right way to use green tea and enjoy its benefits. You have to be attentive through the 5 minute very interesting lecture.

  • Utter waste. Never visit and waste your money. Entry ticket price is 125 per person. I donno what's there to take entry ticket. One aged person explains why you need tea and blah blah. Just one machine which shows how tea powder comes from leaves. You can find the same in many YouTube videos. Better to avoid. Waste of time.

  • Lot of information regarding tea processing. You can go through the origin of tea estate through video. You can see the tea making process. Entry fee for adult is Rs125 which is not worth it. Monday is closed. Ample parking space. 9am to 5pm running time.

  • 120 bucks for a video and a speech is too much to ask for... They didn't even explain the tea making process in detail.. I have taken tea factory visits at couple of other places when they explained all the process in detail and was much cheaper...
