At the doorstep of the highlands, Kandy opens up to the large tea garden. If you are curious to see the different stages in the preparation of the black tea of Ceylon, you can venture into one of the countless factories that line the roads from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya. Most of the farmers' homes have been transformed into visitor and tasting centres.
