"Good place to visit"

Good place to visit. Nice demonstration given by guide. Some old instruments are in good condition which they used long back, for preparing tea. A film on the history of Munnar is really a cherry on top.

"Learn more about tea!"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Good place! But you have to pay an entry fee of 100 rupees which I think is bit to much. The museum is good and shows how the place came into existence. The tea making process was properly explained. And we bought some tea packets too.

"Must See Place"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Its a must see place here. You will see a video first which will give you in-depth knowledge about history, improvements etc. After that you will attend a short speech on tea, though the speaker was good but place was very very crowded. You need to stand very close to one other to hear anything he is saying. Then you will see the process and at the end you can buy some products here. But I would recommend not to buy anything, but buy their product from Munnar town (special outlet there). Because they offer discount on products in town outlets but not in factory outlet.

"Don't forget to buy some flavored tea"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is a tiny museum about tea plantation and tea gardens and then they take you through the entire process of making tea; the factory is very well maintained and people are very hospitable and informative. Don't forget to buy some good flavored tea from the factory shop.

"Tea lover's Paradise in Kerala"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
This place should be an important stop in your holiday list. There are many things to learn while you are there. Don't miss the free documentary there. Also, the in house shop is extremely cheap. So don't forget to buy tea and other things like tea tree oils, from here. The tea tree oil is just for 90 bucks. And it works well too. I don't think you'll get it cheaper than this. The tea is of very good quality. Even if you are not a tea lover like me, buy some for family and friends. And don't forget to try their green apple or lemon ice tea. Its a must try.
