Visit a Tea Plantation – Handunugoda
Learn the story of a tea made for a Chinese Emperor
This is a low-country tea plantation within sniffing distance of the sea, owned by third-generation planter and author Herman Gunarathne. Famed for its ‘virgin white tea’, which retails for over US$1,500/kg, and stocks the shelves of tip-top tea gourmet Mariage Frères in Paris. Guided tours of the serene estate include a walk-through of the antiquated factory and tea with cake.
