We think this is 1st beautiful tea factory and garden in Sri Lanka, View is very beautiful and we can take nice photos over there. The Staff says with us few months before this one Name is "Mackwoods" but company financially lost and they sold out the factory and garden to other company now is the new Name "Damro Tea". There we can buy good quality tea and free of charge we can drink tea with chocolate cakes. Nice for visiting.

MACKWOOD (or called today DAMRO) is one of the (actually the second) oldest tea factory in Sri Lanka.
140 years of history, 10.000 workers, 27.000 acrea tea plantation.
And a self-developed process (looks to be relatively simple) produce one of the finest tea of the world.
A free factory tour is offered to every visitors -hoping, that all of them will purchase some tea packages -as souvenir..

This was totally not meeting our expectation. The tour took less than 5 minutes. The explanation of how tea leave was harvest and make into different types of tea was so limited. Then we were brought into the building and wait for the tea where tourist can buy tea there. Yes, the tea was good, but I can have good tea in hotel or any resturant in Sri Lanka. My point is that it didn't worth to go there and learned nothing about tea and expect us to buy tea there.
We visited a tea museum in Kandy. Though there was enter fee, the guide there showed us how the tea history in Sri Landa, how tea was made in the old time and explained how the tea is graded. It was educational and worth visit. Yes, we tasted good tea there.

The place was on the way from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya, and our taxi driver dropped the two of us there. Our first sight was Chinese lanterns hang all over the place, and tour buses lined the car park. The place was overrun by Chinese tourists on group tours. We went and bought 2 boxes of tea, 1500 rupees each. We waited for them to serve us tea, and asked for the factory tour. The tea never came, and no staff paid any attention to the two of us. They were too busy with the tour groups. We left after a while and regretted having bought the tea there.

There are other better tea plantations to visit in Nuwara Eliya. Avoid this place if you’re a small group.
