Exploring Tea Estates in Nuwara Eliya

Set amidst stunning mountain landscapes, Nuwara Eliya in Sri Lanka is home to idyllic tea estates which you can tour and learn about the world-renowned Ceylon Tea.

Before You Begin

Before you commence your tea estate tours, you should find suitable accommodation in Nuwara Eliya. Bungalows are an ideal option especially those from colonial times; such properties like Scottish Planter Glendevon Bungalow provide the added allure of being set amidst enchanting tea plantations as well.

Pedro Tea Estate

Pedro Tea Estate which is around 3.5 km from Nuwara Eliya is an ideal place to start. You can tour the plantation and watch as female tea pluckers expertly pick tea leaves; you may even ask to give it a try! At the factory, you can see how tea is processed, graded and packed and later, enjoy some refreshing tea.
