Urban Tea

Experience Overview

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: As one of the top producers and exporters of tea, Sri Lanka’s geographical and historical landscape in the last century has been largely shaped by this world-renowned aromatic beverage. With plantations scattered across the island, tea plays an intrinsic role in the daily life of all Sri Lankans and is closely associated with the local culture. The wide variety of teas available in Sri Lanka are graded according to the elevation and climate and then blended accordingly to get the finest in terms of strength and flavor.

EXPERIENCE DESCRIPTION: Visit one of the oldest tea producers in the island and get exclusive insights into the fascinating process of tea and the technology used in the different stages of refining, blending and packaging. Learn about the subtle differences in grain, texture, color, strength and flavor across high, mid and low grown teas under the guidance of professional tea tasters who are regulars at the weekly Sri Lankan tea auction. Walk through this old factory and take a closer look at the machineries used for the different stages of tea and expand your knowledge on how it is graded and then infused with various flavors to suit your taste buds.
