The Tea Story

Tea that was introduced to Sri Lanka during the colonial time by the British is the traditional daily drink of the locals. It is firmly rooted as part of Sri Lankan culture in brewing and sipping a cup of pure Ceylon tea as a vital daily habit.

Serving of tea to family and visitors is a benchmark of hospitality among the Sri Lankans. We at The Secret Ella welcome you to take Ella tea factory tour with us in gaining a complete understanding as to how we produce an aromatic and tasty cup of tea from start to finish.
