Well known for its black tea with exotic woodsy and sweet aroma, tea harvests in Uva differ from the rest of Sri Lanka. Book an excursion to a tea plantation in Uva, and check out how tea harvesting is being done by hand.

Uva is the most remote and least populated province of Sri Lanka. So going there is already an adventure. Its famous tea is grown 1,000 m above sea level, on eastern slopes of island's central mountain range. Dry winds that blow in the area during the summer give the Uva Tea its wonderful aroma and distinct mellow taste.
