Where it all begins

K.L.Dayani has dedicated the last 15 years of her life to plucking and gathering tea leaves to ensure her daughters become independent, educated citizens of Sri Lanka. With the cash advances and her average monthly income of Rs. 55,000, that she receives for her produce, she has built her own house and was able to educate her daughters up to university level.

The Farm

Handpicked daily from her two-acre land, she gathers 550 kg of raw green leaves, of which around 110 kg has been used to make Ceylon black tea at our Cee Tee Hills factory.

The Location

Cee Tee Hills borders the beautiful Sinharaja Rainforest, a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve. The elevated location and cold climate play a role in producing rich, strong and full-bodied tea.
