Halpe Tea  Factory shop - Ella

Located in Ella, almost every tourist that visits the area doesn’t miss out on the opportunity to tour the Uva Halpewatta tea factory, built in 1940, during the British rule, for it has won its fame as the one of the largest tea factory in Sri Lanka.

At the factory while witnessing the step-by-step manufacturing process, followed by a tea tasting session while gazing at the panoramic views from the factory at the sky café, a minimalistic renovation where the interior of exposed steel rafters, recycled palette boxes retains its initial essence.
