Where it all begins

With an experience of over 15 years growing and gathering tea leaves, M.W.Thilakaratne has provided leaves to the Nildiya Valley factory from his 2 acre land for the last 3 years. Having lost half his arm at the age of 24 from an unfortunate accident on the wood-cutting machine, he has worked tirelessly ever since to ensure his children are educated and live a comfortable life. With the income from his produce, he was able to build a house and buy his own vehicle. M.W.Thilakaratne relies on the superintendent and staff at the factory to advise him on matters of his tea garden.

The Farm

Approximately 650kgs of raw green leaves are plucked from his two-acre land daily. Once processed at our factory, 130kgs of tea leaves are used to make the black tea.

The Location

Bordering the gentle Nilawala River, tea produced from the Nildiya Valley produces a golden caramel brew when only the best leaves are used.
