The Tea Factory, Sri Lanka
If you’re a self-confessed tea-aholic, then where better to stay than in a genuine Tea Factory?
This Colonial themed hotel is nestled amongst acres of lush tea plantations and offers guests the chance to experience life as tea picker first hand. You’ll learn to identify the freshest leaves and how to pluck each branch correctly, before your harvest is dried ready for you to drink.
After all that tea-picking you’ll no doubt have worked up an appetite. Fortunately the Tea Factory has its very own Railway Carriage Restaurant, where you’ll be welcomed aboard with a shrill whistle and a wave of the green flag by the maître d’.
Don’t expect to see a menu though, at this restaurant the Chef visits each dining ‘passenger’ to discuss their culinary preferences and create a meal unique to them. We don’t recommend you ask for spaghetti hoops though!
