Tea Empire in Nuwara Eliya

Nestled at the heart of Sri Lanka's thriving tea industry, this enchanting destination serves as a delightful homage to the country's colonial past, reflecting the genteel ambiance reminiscent of England's home counties. Immerse yourself in the rich heritage of the tea plantations as you embark on tours through neatly terraced estates, witnessing the meticulous work of tea pickers, and perhaps, acquire your own curated samples to savor the essence of Sri Lankan tea at home.

For ardent tea enthusiasts, a pilgrimage to the Haputale Mountains in the Hill Country is a must. Here, amidst the emerald landscapes, Sir Thomas Lipton established his iconic tea empire. To retrace the origins of this tea legacy, venture to Lipton's Seat, Sir Lipton's favored vantage point, where he would sit and oversee his sprawling estate.

While the journey to Lipton's Seat can be undertaken by car, opting for an open-air tuk-tuk ride adds an element of joy and adventure to the experience. Commence your excursion early in the day to catch the breathtaking vistas before the afternoon mist descends, shrouding the surrounding mountains and lending an ethereal touch to the awe-inspiring panoramas.
