"The tea factory was founded in 1841 by the British captain William Mackwood. With its top-notch black tea, Mackwoods has always been a black tea supplier for the British royal family. It takes about 2 hours to drive from Kandy to this place. When I enter the tea factory, my eyes are full of green. The eye-catching Mackwoods logo is quite Hollywood style. The staff will first take you to visit the Mackwoods Museum, introduce the history of the tea factory and the tea-making craftsmanship, and then take you to the restaurant to taste tea. The tea is free here, and the chocolate cake for refreshment costs 90 rupees, but the taste is pretty good. The original tea it sells is OP (the dark green outer packaging is printed with a blue elegant ribbon, each pack / 100g, 5 packs are one. This kind of tea leaves are slender and complete, and can be directly brewed and consumed like domestic black tea). BOP (the dark green outer package is printed with a red flowing ribbon, each package / 200g, 5 packages are a piece. This kind of tea is more finely broken, the tea has a strong flavor, and the locals like to cook and filter and add sugar to drink). BOPF (the dark green outer package is printed with a light green elegant ribbon, each package / 200g, 5 bags as a piece. This kind of tea is the most finely crushed, and the tea flavor is the strongest. It is suitable for cooking and filtering milk tea with milk). As for its fruity teas, there are mainly strawberry, orange, mango, cherry, blackcurrant, vanilla, mint, cinnamon, chrysanthemum, jasmine, ginger, vanilla, but they are all teabags, except for fruity teas. In addition, it is not recommended to buy teabags, although they are cheap, but the quality is not good, it is recommended that you buy the original tea from their home! Its original tea is divided into two types: iron cans and cartons. As mentioned above, the quality is the same but the packaging is different!"
