Urban Tea

Back Back

As one of the top producers and exporters of tea, Sri Lanka’s geographical and historical landscape in the last century has been largely shaped by this world-renowned aromatic beverage. With plantations scattered across the island, tea plays an intrinsic role in the daily life of all Sri Lankans and is closely associated with the local culture. The wide variety of teas available in Sri Lanka are graded according to the elevation and climate and then blended accordingly to get the finest in terms of strength and flavor.

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
