Ceylon Tea Trails

After breakfast, you can enjoy a morning “Tea Experience” with a visit to the plantations and factory. First introduced to the country in 1867 by Englishman James Taylor, today tea is Sri Lanka’s main export. You will be able to personally acquaint yourself with the art of tea plucking and learn about the full process from planting and varietal differences to the auction process and tasting.
The remainder of the day is at leisure. Relax in your bungalow or explore the local trails which wind through the tea gardens by mountain bike or on foot.

Today we enjoy a scenic train journey to Hatton, regarded as one of the most beautiful journeys in Sri Lanka. Witness green rolling hills and tea pickers at work in the tea plantations, and wave back at the school children waiting for the train to pass by as they cross over the rail tracks.
Arrive at Tea Trails, a cluster of colonial-era planters’ bungalows packed with period furnishings. Each bungalow has its own housekeeper, chef, butler and houseboys – you’ll feel like an honoured guest.
