We restarted our journey from Kitulgala towards Nuwara Eliya via many of Sri Lanka’s tea plantations or “Estates”. Zesta is located in one such village called Watawala and these plantations are owned by Watawala Tea Ceylon Ltd.
A huge yellow cup is mounted on a pole near the road. The shop itself is in front of lush green tea plantations. A beautiful lawn with oil palm trees planted in a line on one side and a flower bed on other.
The tea was amazingly tasty. The reason could be because it came directly from the farm, but it was the best I had ever tasted. We took around 20 minutes break there and then moved towards next destination.
