Blue Field Tea Gardens

It would be challenging to drive through Hill Country and not visit at a tea plantation.

Sri Lanka , formerly named Ceylon, is the world’s fourth largest producer of tea after China, India and Kenya. Tea accounts for 15% of the GDP.

On our way from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya, we stopped at the country’s oldest factory, Blue Field Tea Gardens.

I’m a big tea drinker, so I was curious to see how it was processed.

All leaves are hand-picked: Ceylon black, green and white.

Unfortunately, the machines weren’t running that day.

It was rainy and overcast, so we didn’t bother spending much time in the tea fields.
