The Bluefield Tea Gardens and factory is a great way to stretch your legs when on the way from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya. The tour of the factory was informative although very dusty. The cup of tea provided after the tour was lovely. The toilet facilities were very clean. There was food available, but we did not consume any, so... More

And this was a very good tea garden with a nice guided tour of the tea factory- the tour is free along with a cuppa to sample post tour. Most visitors buy some fresh tea and so did we... not cheap tea but good quality I presume as I have not yet tasted it. Worth a visit.

Unfortunately as we visited on the weekend we couldn't see anything working but we had a really excellent tour and explanation of how everything worked. Afterwards we had a lovely cup of tea and opportunity to buy some local tea.

We stopped by this tea factory on the way to Kandy from Nuwara Eliya. the way itself is also good worth it. Factory offered free guide and one bottle of tea.

We received a complimentary tour from a very helpful guide (which, after going to a few of these, we learned is definitely not the norm). It was a lovely glimpse into the world of tea production. The tea fields in the immediate vicinity aren't as picture-worthy, though, so head elsewhere for your photo op.

This is a must visit destination for tea lovers. It will take you to the world of produce, lived the location and had a brief from the producers about the 100years old British constructed factory. After that visit the fields and see how the staff are picking leaves and then enjoy free tea (only black).

the visit of the factory is nice and instructive but do not miss the real gem: the tea plantations behind it! You can stroll between the hills, see (and smell) the tea and interact with the workers.

Wish the tour included a visit to the plantation to see the picking of tea leaves. Would have loved to learn about soil and climate conditions and also see the tea being harvested. Expensive teas in gift shop. Overall disappointing!
