Tour a Sri Lankan tea estate

Sum up

Red Dot’s Tea Estate experience takes place in one of the most beautiful organic tea estates in the Sri Lanka hill country, hidden above Ravana-Ella Falls and with breathtaking views of Ella Rock and Lipton’s Seat.

On this activity, you get the chance to explore a working organic farm and learn more about the manual techniques used to produce the teas, coffee, cinnamon and preserves that brought Sri Lanka to worldwide attention.

Your guide will lead you through carefully-tended slopes where tea, cinnamon and lemongrass are cultivated before taking you to the factory.

Try your hand at plucking and rolling some tea leaves yourself before tasting four signature teas at a viewpoint overlooking Ella Gap.

You can also choose a more upmarket “Teaology” option which includes a menu of vegetarian dishes specifically matched with the teas on offer.

The experience can be arranged on Sundays and Public holidays upon request. However, it is advised to visit the estate during the regular working days to experience the best.

Duration: 2 hours

Best Time: Year-round
