This exquisite tea plantation in the hills above Koggala offers highly informative tours of the estate. The estate is located roughly half-way between Mirissa and Galle and it took us about 30 minutes of tuk tuk to reach the place. The Handunugoda Tea Estate, which sits at a humble elevation just above 100 feet, is arguably the worlds closest estate to the ocean. The estate is known as the Virgin White Tea Factory – it produces a white tea completely untouched by human hands. You can purchase this tea, as well as numerous other varieties at the charming shop. The exceptional estate is well-known for two things, including being called the Virgin White Tea Factory, and the fact that it is so close to the sea.
