A Day at Tea Trails
The day at Tea Trails starts with the wonderful tradition of Bed Tea. Served by your butler as part of a gentle wake-up call. The butler will also draw your bath.
Then, an early morning walk followed by an English or Sri Lankan breakfast. A unique aspect of Tea Trails’ cuisine is the use of fresh, home grown vegetables, herbs and teas from the surrounding estates. Basil, rosemary, thyme, tarragon, sage, parsley and mint inspire and enliven the chef’s menus every day. Scrumptious afternoon cream teas in gardens curiously English and exotic at the same time. A four-course dinner that is at once contemporary with its garden-fresh ingredients married with choice wines, best shared in good company. Or a fabulously aromatic, authentic Sri Lankan rice and curry for lunch – a definite harbinger of the afternoon siesta.
Tea Trails is all about the time-honored planters’ traditions: Roaring fires and the comfort of a single malt whisky while the mists roll in or a stiff gin and tonic after a long day’s walk in the tea gardens, accompanied by the spicy flavors of Sri Lankan nibbles to stimulate the appetite.
Here at this very special and unique destination hotel you’ll find plenty to do. Walking the tea trails and discovering how they grow and produce tea, of course spa time and relaxation are de rigeur. You will not tire of this beautiful location miles from anywhere! Plus having your own butler will make you feel like the princess that you truly are!
If you wish, you can take dinner on their own or meet up with your travel mates to share the day’s discoveries over a meal with wine.
