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.

  • The history of how tea evolved. A few different equipment used in the olden days are available for display. A video is played in the theatre. Then a guide explains how tea is processed and also how green tea is good for the body. Then you enter into the factory where tea is being made from leaves to the complete product. Then you are taken to the area where different varieties of tea area available for purchase.

Visit here. Otherwise, Don't Waste of ur Trip Time. Nothing here.

  • Don't go to this tea museum. It is not a original factory, it's a demo factory. There is not such thing to see so. If you want to just go for it means you can otherwise don't waste Ur valuable time in your vacation or romantic or honeymoon time. Here some photos I will upload these are the thing only here. U can see here itself by the photos.

  • Nothing special compared to other tea factory. Very large entry fee (rs 125) and only demo of tea production. In other factories we can directly see their actual production. I think it's better to visit tea factory near to mattupety dam than tea museum

  • Must see & new experience.. The presentation by the demonstrator there is very convincing and you will get to know all minute details if you pay proper attention...
