CEYLON TEA MUSEUM
Preserving the Heritage of Tea
As you enjoy the taste of a cup of Ceylon Tea, it can make you think of the history behind the rich flavour of what is undoubtedly the world’s best tea.
Built in 1925, the spacious four storied Hantane Tea Factory, three kilometers from Kandy city, had been abandoned for more than a decade when it was earmarked for the Museum Project undertaken by the Sri Lanka Tea Board and the Planters’ Association of Ceylon. Today it stands as a proud monument to the success story that is Ceylon Tea and it is one of the best of its kind in the world.
The museum consists of four floors. The ground floor and the second floor exhibit very old items of machinery and the first floor consist of a library and an auditorium with facilities for audio visual presentations. The third floor is allocated to tea sales outlets, where a selection of Srilanka’s fine tea is available. The entire top floor is a restaurant. A panoramic view of the Kandy town surrounded by the beautiful Hunasgiriya, Knuckles Range and the Matale range of hills can be viewed through a telescope mounted on the fourth floor.
