Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We couldn't have chosen a better place to have this experience! the visit is free they only ask you to buy some tea if you like the tour (and it's really worth it because it's delicious) if you don't like the tour you're free to leave without paying anything (it's impossible not to like it) they'll let you go first take a tour of the garden and the plantations, then they show you the factory and show you the process with which they make tea, at the end there is a tasting of 7 different types of tea (which we all bought) recommended, come here!

Thank you to Gunasoma (and wife), Manshijt, and ChoopoolMandrit.

We signed up for the 2.5 hour Methsiri mini adventure. It was a 40 minute drive in the back of a landrover to where our tour started (from Akuressa). It was great to see rubber trees, and how they collect the latex, the real jungle and landscape (saw some wild monkeys too), how cinnamon bark is collected, tea plantations, and more. Gunasoma's English is excellent, and he is very knowledgeable. It was only about two to three km walk, but you need to be able, and it can be slipper. It was ok for my six year old daughter. We had lunch at the end, an excellent selection of dishes made by Gunasoma and family in his new middle-of-nowhere 'hut'.

We really enjoyed our experience. The staff were very friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. Thank you Nandana tea staff!

However, I didn't read things carefully or I misunderstood. We did want to see how the factory worked and the tea was made. I now don't believe that is part of the Mesthiri tour. Gunasoma kindly let us have a factory tour (at Akuressa) and a tea sampling at the end because we wanted to do that. I would recommend that you clarify that you want this in advance, because really that's why we were visitng Nandana - it's all because of the tea!

This is the place to really understand tea production and spices that bring flavours to Teas. The factory is attached to a spice garden. They make you taste many different teas so you can really understand the differences between big and small leaves. there is a cafe and even a wooden cottage, simple cuisine but amazing tea!!. I always believed that the best teas were to grow on top of the hills but I tasted amazing tea from this low altitude production. It is near Galle and Matara. Great experience.

We had a wonderful tour, we have been showed around, all plants were explained, we were also able to smell and taste the leaves of the different species. The garden is a marvel, huge diversity, and we saw more monkeys than in the rainforest previously. Our guide was very knowledgabe, explained well the plants and how they are processed and used. The hospitality was super, and all the teas we tasted at the and of the tour were very savoury, rich an refreshibg in taste. We had the chance to buy their products which had a reasonable price. We had a lovely time here and we recommend visiting.

It was an amazing experience that we ever had. A refreshing glass of ice tea and authentic Sri Lankan lunch was delicious. Totally beautiful environment to relax our minds. Thank you so much Mr. Wanigassekara, his wife, and the staff for the great hospitality and guidance throughout the stay

Place which gathered lot of information about indigenous plants and herbs. Mr. Gunasoma’s generosity In sharing these things is highly appreciated. Authentic Sri Lankan lunch which was prepared by his farm was delicious and far more valuable than money.

Experienced orthodox tea manufacturing, a refreshing cup of tea with home made evening snacks and welcoming hosts that really take care of you. There's a huge garden of rare spices and medicinal plants in the back yard where you can walk around freely. It feels like walking inside a huge jungle. Totally awesome place to relax and experience culture.
