One of the region’s best-kept secrets is the Temi Tea Factory. It is here that the wondrous and organic produce of the garden is turned into a fine collection of tea. The visit to the factory gives an inside peek to those interested in knowing tea processing methods.
Best known for its black teas, the tea estate started the mass manufacturing of its teas in 1977. Over the years, the estate has grown to bring nearly 500 acres of the mountainside under tea plantation. Apart from the certified clonal varieties of bushes that Temi Tea Estate has, there are also plants from the chinary seeds which help the estate grow teas of flavoured varieties. It is worth visiting and assessing this decades-old factory to understand where one of the world’s finest tea varieties is produced.
