Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with full of lush countryside, romantic culture, and tons of intrigue. While the country is relatively small, it is rather large in what it has to offer visitors. Because the country is so well known for its vast array of tea leaves, no trip to Sri Lanka would be complete without participating in at least one tea tour. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work on a tea plantation? Now you can enjoy this experience first-hand. You will be taught on how to correctly identify the fresh leaves suitable for plucking, and how to pluck the tips of each branch correctly. You can then bring your plucking to the hotel and have them dried. Enjoy the whole process of plucking, drying and making your own tea.
