Kids will like it as it's tea museum and chocolate factory. It shows full process of how tea and chocolates are made. Nothing great though.

We visited the tea museum and garden and witnessed the manufacturing. This is a nice experience. They collect INR 10 as entrance fee and serve a sample tea to procure small orders. They sell tea, chocolates, cakes, Eucalyptus oil and more.

Better plan a visit early in the day. If genuinely interested in the processes, it will take about an hour for completing the visit. Further, thre are outlets selling various types of tea products, which could interest you.
