Our special Discovery Offer is the best way to explore the distinct charm of Tea Trails – from the old-world colonial lifestyle of tea planters to the culture and biodiversity that defines Ceylon Tea Trails’ unique sense of place.
Our Signature Tea Experience is an informative and entertaining tour of Dunkeld Tea Factory that covers all things “tea” - including the history of Ceylon tea, the workings of a historic tea factory and how flavours are crafted.
The offer also includes a special culinary experience of either our Planter’s Lunch or a Sri Lankan cookery class. The Planter’s Lunch is an intimate picnic lunch that attempts to recreate how planters of a bygone era would break for lunch during their estate inspections. The location is a quaint and rustic watch hut, high on the mountain behind Dunkeld Factory, with a stunning vista over Castlereagh reservoir. Alternatively, get a hands on experience with one of our amazing Tea Trails chefs during a cookery class and learn the basics of Sri Lankan cooking, from the range of spices and ingredients, to the techniques that meld these distinct flavours beautifully on your palate.
The Private Tea Tasting is a fun, fascinating and immersive experience that delves into the flavours of tea and the art of creating them guided by our expert host Bernard.
A Tea Trails naturalist accompanies you on your choice of a guided walk or bike ride and brings to life the nuances of the fascinating biodiversity of the hill country. The trails wind through beautifully manicured tea-fields and forests with stunning views around every bend. Finish with an al-fresco tea-infused BBQ amongst the tea fields.
Guided by a resident Naturalist, explore the biodiversity and wildlife of our central highlands that are protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Serial Property. Choose from a visit to Horton Plains National Park or Adam’s Peak – one of Sri Lanka’s most revered sites.
