When it comes to making a cup of tea, there are not many places more glamorous in which to do so than in the lush, green hill country of Sri Lanka, and also get the chance to take a Sri Lanka Tea Plantation Tour. When a tea factory, established during the grand days of the British Raj, was damaged by fire, a new one was built among the tea bushes. It is this former tea factory that has been converted into a cosy, colonial-style hotel set deep in the countryside — the Heritance Tea Factory.
Nestled within the panoramic landscapes of the city of Nuwara Eliya, the hotel is located in a region famed for its tea production and a country that is world famous for its brews. After all, this is an island nation whose former moniker — Ceylon — is one of the most popular brands of tea in the world today.
