In 1975 along the valley of Lumbini Dayapala Jayawardana planted his first tea field. His vision was to create a great tasting tea that reflects the true character of the tea leaves and the land. To this day Chaminda Jayawardana lives and breath this vision by producing teas that showcase how each tea variety express itself when sharpened by the soil and the sun of Ceylon.
We use our expertise in the fine art of black tea making to produce this artisanal tea in the Lumbini Tea Valley, which is situated just below the world heritage site of Sinharaja rainforest in Southern Sr Lanka.
The oxygen-rich rain forest winds flowing from Sinharaja along with the sea breeze making its way from the Southern coast create this miraculous combination of winds to induce unique flavour and aromatic medium bodied tea which leaves natural sweetness in the mouth. Master tea Tasters commonly call this unique flavour as 'rain forest floral honey flavour'. We offer this distinct flavour for the tea lovers around the world through our brand DaluTM.
