An awesome place to understand the process of making different types of tea (black, green, normal) from the tea plant. It also houses a museum which holds numerous historical machines and artificial things used in early days. Entry fees is Rs 200. One more attraction here is a watch tower behind the museum which gives you a beautiful panoramic view of the tea plantations and the mountains.
