Testimonials

Here I was amazed by the production of tea and its different flavors. Here you can taste any flavor of tea and purchase accordingly. Black tea is common people buy different flavors for themselves and for gifting purposes also. The cheapest will be the black tea all the way up to 12000 rs just for 250gm for white tea. You can purchase it in different quantities also. The factory tour is given by factory workers and they are really polite and give you all the history and current information about the company. There is a photo spot where you can click the best picture for your memories and you are certain to remember this place. The colors and the fragrance of tea plants will melt your heart. The taste of the real tea can be experienced here.

A visit to the Lockhart Tea factory and tea museum is a worthwhile experience. We learnt so many new things about tea powder making process. The factory tour lasts around 20 minutes. The guide explained the tea making process well. One can taste various varieties of tea and also buy tea powder.
