Mandira Dickoya

Outside at Mandira Dickoya

Sri Lanka is, without a doubt, most famous for its tea.  So a stay at a tea plantation seemed like a must.  Between tea five times a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and the 10:30 and 3:30 tea times) we managed to squeeze in walking around the plantation, talking with the tea pickers and visiting the tea processing unit for our plantation.  Pretty amazing to see the entire tea process - a lot of hard working men and women.  Fantastic tea, amazing Sri Lankan food, and the house practically to ourselves - we really didn't want to leave!

  1. Imagine spending 16 years of your life living and growing up on a tea plantation...

    1. An amazing place to grow up. Now I understand why you want to go back!!
