Kannan Devan Tea Museum - Review

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. It starts from a simple tea roller to the present fully automatic tea factory of Madupatty. As you enter notice the granite sundial, made in 1913 by the Art Industrial School in Tamil Nadu. On display are several old equipment including tea roller of 1905. They have the Pelton wheel which was used in the 1920’s on exhibition as well. The CTC type tea processing machine are a proud possession in the museum. Check out the rail engine wheel unit of the Kundale Valley Light Railway that operated between Munnar and Top Station.

The museum's room features the old-time bungalow furniture, cash safe, magneto phone, wooden bathtub, iron oven that used firewood. Antique office equipment such as typewriters that was in use in the High Range is there as well. There is also a tea tasting demonstration room with a variety of teas on display. Visit the tea-manufacturing unit where you can see different steps of tea processing. To savour the taste of different teas, attend the tea tasting session inside the museum.

Run by Kanan Devan Hills Plantations now, the Tea Museum traces the evolution of the tea industry in Munnar from the 1880s.

Kannan Devan Tea Museum, Munnar Reviews

  • It's a beautiful place. They have different plantation for tea. They also have a small inbuilt factory where they have placed a machine in which tea is converted from leave to tea powder. Also they take session explaining different methods of tea offering. Also you can see a shop there to buy their products. They also offer tasting tea. Place in itself is good.

  • First ever seen a tea museum. They show a video of around 25 minutes in the beginning of your and this is really great informative video. Once you finish , you can go for a tour to this factory where machinery has been set up in such a simple way that you can understand process easily. Kids as well adults will enjoy seeing this process. Staffs are cordial and cooperative to visitors. Post visit the last lag is shopping where you get so many varieties of Ripple Tea. Overall a must to visit place.

  • They show the history of Munnar which I found very informative. Once that is done, they arrange a session explaining what are the benefits of tea and how it should be an essential part of our daily lives. You can watch the process of making of tea from tea leaves and also buy quality products if you wish. The tea that they serve has a unique taste. The location of this museum is such that it's surrounded with tea plantations on hills and is a scenic beauty in its own.

  • This museum is very small but worth a visit. There are very rare communication equipments which were used almost 80 years back. Can learn about the history of Kannan Devan tea company. A 20 minute video will be played which is educating. People also get a guided tour of tea leaves being processed in different stages.

  • Good place to know some history about tea plantation in Munnar. It's is good environment. Good staff. Has some artifacts to be called as a museum. Entrance ticket is RS 125 which is over priced. What they got to offer is not worth of RS.125 per person. But a good place for a quality time pass.
