The tea story

The Amazing Journey Into The Art Of Tea Making

Tea was introduced to Sri Lanka in the colonial era by the British and the daily practice of drinking tea is now a firmly established institution in Sri Lankan culture. The serving of tea among Sri Lankan friends and family is a true mark of hospitality. Our unique 98 Acre tea story tour will help you get a complete understanding as to how we produce tea - from start to finish. Featuring among the best places to visit in Ella, now you can take a walk in the plantation with our expert during plucking time and admire the deft plucking of the standard ‘two leaves and a bud’. Take a moment to chat with a tea plucker, snap a picture to reminisce later and then continue onto the factory floor to see the withering process and subsequent steps involved in making fresh tea. Continue onto a great tea tasting session at the factory and then return to the Bar 98 or Restaurant 98 to appreciate a tea cocktail, mocktail or a delicately tea infused dish. Immerse yourself in a never-to-be-forgotten wonderful tea experience! Breathe in the aroma of factory fresh tea and learn how to brew a good cup of tea! By the end of the day, you will have a good understanding of the steps involved in making quality Pure Ceylon Tea.
