The 12,000 square foot facility is visitor friendly and capable of processing high quality black tea. Visitors to the plantation can view the tea-making equipment through 125-foot window gallery in the air-conditioned factory. Visitors can also enjoy a full audio and video tour and shop at the new gift shop.
