Visit a Tea Factory and a Tea Plantation where the best tea in the world is being produced. At the tea plantation take a closer look on how the tea pickers pick the tea leaves, then you can join them to pick the tea leaves, then visit the factory with a staff member who will explain the process of fermentation, rolling, drying, cutting, sieving and grading of tea. There are machines for almost every part of the process except of course the all-important tea tasting at the end of the process to determine the quality of the tea. Afterwards check in to the hotel.
(Please note, train tickets can be booked 10 – 14 days prior to the date of travel and preference is given to government officials. If train tickets are not available, a scenic road transfer through the hill country will be substituted.)
