When closer to Nuwara Eliya, altitude increases, the temperature was gradually  cool. In this area, a lot of tea plantations come into view. So on the way to Nuwara Eliya, I decided to drop in a tea factory on a small village of Tawalantenna.

She described these machinery and the process variously, but I forgot almost of them because I am the elderly and so forgetful.

Found this sign board in the factory. Probably the manager is fair and kind, I was impressed.

Then, she took me to another room.

She described the Glenloch tea factory products and brewed a cup of tea freshly. Unfortunately, I am a coffee drinker. However, the tea is very fragrance.

The factory is clean, the workers looked bright with joy in working. Flowers were well cared, too.
