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
Worth a visit to learn about the history of the area & the tea company - mostly in the short film that is shown. The museum is not very big & mainly photos. However after the film you see the machinery & tea processing - we enjoyed that part. You can buy tea of from the factory outlet and sip a cup too.
Overall experience was good. The tea documentary was excellent and informative. Tea museum live demonstration guy was passionate but little too much. Presenter was an Animated character who spoke at great lengths to impress upon is the benefits of green Tea. The mini tea garden was good. Price is too high for the offerings.
Incredible experience to walk through a live tea factory being shown every single step from leaf to brew. The workers provide you samples at each stage to compare the process from the last step. I would definitely reccommend this experience. There is a large tea shop at the end of the museum which is quite touristy. The tea available there can be bought at normal shops in the area so be careful of costs.
A very unique place to have a visit. They have so many different types of tea. They have tea making machine. You can buy their products also. Tasting tea is also there. A very nice experience.
Loved the place. The staff's were very friendly in explaining the process of getting the final extract from tea. Was a pleasure to watch the process .
