Black Tea

"Our mission is to produce and market high quality teas that will delight our customers"

We produce two categories of high-quality Black Specialty Teas in seventeen tea gardens located in Sri Lanka's (Formerly Ceylon) best tea growing areas. The Dimbulla Valley in the middle of Sri Lanka is home to twelve of these estates producing High Grown specialty Dimbula Teas while the remaining five estates located on the lush planes of the South, produce Low Grown leafy grades known as Ruhuna Teas .

  Dimbula Tea  

Refreshingly Mellow Dimbula tea, undoubtedly the most well-known name associated with Ceylon tea, is what we make on our estates situated at elevations of 1,100 to 1,500 meters above sea level. The monsoon rains and the cold-dry weather of the western slopes of the mountains help us produce a range of teas, from full bodied to light and delicate. The cold winds that blow throughout the nights and the clear blue skies experienced during the daytime from late January to early April create biological changes in the tea bushes, bringing forth, larger than average leaves which give a distinct Dimbula flavour found nowhere else in Sri Lanka or in the world.

  Ruhuna Tea  

Distinctively Unique

The uniqueness of Ruhuna Tea, brought to you from our estates in the Galle and Deniyaya region, we believe, is specially due to the low elevation and the particular condition of the soil, giving the leaves a blackness which imparts a strong brew with a distinctive taste. Here is evidence that even though the Southern part
