Being one the largest tea exporters in the world and providing some of the finest teas that you could hope for, Sri Lanka is a haven for tea lovers all over. Famed for its “Ceylon Tea” (Formerly known as Ceylon), Sri Lanka consists of a strong tea consuming culture which you easily get used to. Introduced by the British in the 1800’s, tea export has become one of the major economic boosters here. From single origins to various fruit blends, our teas have made its mark over the years.
With your own personalized tea tour, you get to experience everything that is intertwined with “tea”. A visit to a tea estate which may be one of your firsts can be a wonderful experience as a traveller. The mountain air, smell of fresh tea leaves and most of all the views are splendid. Tea plucking is arduous work but for the labourers who have made it their routine, it’s just all in a day’s work. You can even join them and learn the fine art of plucking the tender tea leaves. Visits can be arranged to a tea factory where you can witness the entire process and also enjoy a cup of tea and if you are lucky enough some freshly baked goodies too.
Many tea estates house their own bungalows where guests can relax and spend a peaceful holiday amidst the greenery.
Imagine sipping in some pure Ceylon Tea in the morning with views of acres of team covered hills and breathing in the fresh mountain air? Talk to Lakpura today and get your Tea Tour sorted.
