Plantations

Tea

Tea is Nature's gift to mankind. A beverage that heals, protects and refreshes, it is also infinite in variety, changing subtlety with the natural alchemy of sunshine, soils, wind, rain and temperature. That beautiful variety in tea is as much a challenge as a deliciously indulgent reward for nature gives us a tea to suit every mood, and desire. Lankem has about 6000 hectares of Tea in production in the Western High grown region (2300 hectares in Kotagala under Kotagala Plantations and 3700 under Agarapatana Plantations). Agarapatana Plantations has a further 2900 hectares of Tea in bearing in the Uva High grown region, whilst Kotagala Plantations has a further 250 hectares of Tea in the Low grown Kalutara district.We produce about 16 million kilograms of Tea per annum, which is approximately 5% of the island's total crop.
