Little bit about Dambatenne Tea Factory

While you are touring around Ella and Haputale, if you want to witness how world’s most famous tea is made of, Dambatenne Tea factory is the place to visit.

Dambatenne Tea factory was built by Sir Thomas Lipton in 1890, same person who built the famous viewpoint Liption’s seat.

Tea tours are available for visitors where you can see the whole process from brining the tea leaves in and to making it ready for shipments.

You can plan your visit together with the hike to Lipton’s Seat (The factory is 7 kms away from Lipton’s seat)

If you are using public transport, the best is to take a bus to Dambatenne (around 10 kms from Haputale) which are available every half an hour and from there to walk to the tea factory or to take a Tuk Tuk.
