Just outside Melheim is the Dambetenna tea factory and plantation. From here, you can choose to wander along winding mountain roads or take a tuk tuk the 7 or so kilometres to the top of Poonagala hill, where you will find the “The Lipton Seat” viewpoint. This is where the successful Scottish tea baron Sir Thomas Lipton sat and kept a close eye on his thriving business. Enjoy the spectacular views of the area and the tea plantations.
