Nuwara Eliya is known for its Pedro Tea Estate. Lucky me, the House of Leisure where I stayed is overlooking the tea plantation. The views were stunning from my vantage point – the balcony. We arrived at the accommodation just in time for the sunset. After admiring the stunning scenery below, I asked the receptionist which way I could go down to the tea estate. I grabbed my jacket and explored the emerald field – alone. I didn’t see anyone there. The tea pickers must have resigned for the day already. Down the valley and across the field, three kids waved at me and I waved back. I sat down on a huge rock and enjoyed the golden sun hiding behind the mountains.
Tea Factory Tour
Pedro Tea Estate Factory offers a 20-minute tour during the day. However, I was told that there’s not much going on inside because the factory does their production at night – when the temperature is low. And oh, while on tour, you’ll get to wear their green uniforms!
