I went to a tea and cinnamon factory today. I picked the tea leaves and was shown how they reached the final stage of tea that is sent to the brokers. Its an amazing process and still uses very old techniques. The tasting was the most interesting part. More than 40 types of varieties and the great thing is you can buy it right there at the plantation where it is picked and processed. Sri lanka is known for its very high quality of tea and is the no. 1 producer in the world.
