This fascinating experience is run by Kenneth Congreve, a tea expert who was born in Badulla, in Sri Lanka’s tea country. He comes from a long line of tea planters, and started his career as a junior tea taster in 1980. This one-hour experience, guided by Kenneth, takes you through the basics of tea tasting. This includes how to use your nose to detect the delicate aroma from each infusion as well as identifying how the colour of the brew can affect the final cup. Kenneth identifies the differences between long-grown and high-grown tea and allow you to try and identify the differences yourself. At the end you will get to try a variety of teas that Simondou has to offer, and you’ll go home with your very own pack. This excursion begins at 10.30am and can take place only on Thursday and Fridays. Please note this tour is subject to availability at the time of booking.
