This factory was built by Sir Thomas J Lipton and he started his tea business from here and finally built an empire.
We have now tried to modernize this factory to a 2014 model but it is not at all easy.
Having read some reviews we find that people are stating about charging Rs. 250/= per soul and saying it is two expensive. This is less than 2 dollars. Sad when we go to foreign countries what exorbitant prices they charge and at times it is over 50 dollars just to see something.
This is essentially a tea manufacturing estate and we permit our guest that come to this area to have a look at the factory and if required to purchase some teas. It may be highly priced but definitely cheaper than what you purchase in the shelves of supper markets. We have people who comes regularly and buy large quantities of them obviously due to the quality of the product.
We pack top quality Uva Tea and they are fresh. There is a saying that " Cheap this no good and good things no cheap" we follow that principal.
If anyone cannot afford it then it is up to you we will not force you to do so but I am sure if you do buy you will always come back and buy more since we have so many who purchase up to 50 to 60 packs at a time.

However thanks for the constructive critisism and whatever possible has been rectified.
