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.

  • Visited there with my family. AWESOME!! THERE WERE ALL KIND OF MACHINES IN WHICH TEA IS MADE AND THERE IS ALSO A DOCUMENTARY VIDEO WHICH IS SHOWN TO THE VISITORS JUST LIKE CINEMA HALL. ALSO HAD SOME TEA THERE AND ALSO SHOPPED THERE. TEA PACKS ARE FRESH AND CHEAP. ITS ALSO GOOD FOR EDUCATION PURPOSE.

  • They are charging huge amount for entry pass. Their is nothing interested things inside. They show a video presentation but it was also available in YouTube. They include old photographs of Munnar are informative. History students will going to like the documents and pictures. But not recommended for tourists because of huge amount of entry tickets. Inside this museum they demonstrate simple process of tea making but No samples were given. Not worth for money

  • They gave a good power point presentation and had my full purchase there only it's good n decent . The best is strawberries jam n black tea . Green tea was okay and they operated the machine of tea Leaf n cutting n powders and waste separation. How the dust is collected and how it's packed and how they dry it and grade of tea n Leaf. Had a good knowledge about the Munnar n how they work with the company n workers to obtain the good welfare. Really a knowledgeable place to visit.

  • Only if you are really interested in knowing the history of tea, then Tea Museum is the right place for you. Disappointed to learn that entry is Rs.125/- per person. It shows a documentary. One can get printed his/her picture on coffee mug. It has got ample parking. It has got a stall to sell few eating items. Free restrooms are made available. Have a good visit.

  • Very informative, definitely recommend. Do take the tour of the factory which starts from 1st floor. A certain gentleman gave a detail insight of teas and lot of info on green and black tea, including the correct way to make them. Attached pics of the same
