Along the winding roads of Sri Lanka’s hill country through the nearby town of Haputale lies Thotalagala, a stylishly refurbished Tea bungalow owned by the Thomas Lipton Dambatenne tea estate. I was delighted to be invited for a 2 night stay to experience the bungalow and nearby sights, including a visit to Lipton’s Seat, champagne breakfast, high tea and to Dambatenne tea factory itself; one of the oldest working in Sri Lanka, active for over 126 years. I’ve put together a travel diary of my stay, with plenty of photos to illustrate- I must say, writing it down made me realise just how much eating and drinking was involved!
