Message to the world
We are a family owned farm that has grown tea since 1930 and started manufacturing in 1933. We have continued to improve the methods of production keeping pace with technology. We find that many people throughout the world consume blended teas and do not get to taste the best of the teas we manufacture. So we started looking to sell our good teas directly to consumers or even wholesalers and retailers who have similar plans to provide single origin teas to their respective clients.
What type of tea do you grow/process?
Black Orthodox teas from the RUHUNU region of Ceylon tea regions.
Do you grow organic tea? Would you like to explain more?
NO. The high cost of certification and the ensuing loss in the crop is not economical. Further only chemical fertilizer is used parallel to compost. No residual chemical is present in the manufactured tea. No Chemical sprays are used on the foliage as it is not necessary due to absence of pests or diseases.
