Tea Plantation Tours

In 1867, James Taylor, a Scotsman, planted the first tea bushes in Sri Lanka on the Loolecondera Estate in Kandy. Today, Sri Lanka exports about 300,000 tons of tea per year, which is equivalent to 99 billion cups. There are numerous local tea plantations to tour where you can enjoy the lush green rolling hills and the delightful smells of the plantation. You can unwind and relax with a cup of Ceylon tea, which is considered one of the finest in the world.

However, it’s worth noting that the tea sold to tourists at the plantations can be quite expensive, particularly the white tea tips. While it is of exceptional quality, you can find a great range of quality tea brands at your local supermarket. Dilmah is Sri Lanka’s most well-known export tea, and they always have a good stock at Food City. After enjoying the tour, you can brew your cuppa at home and relish the memories of your visit.
