Dilmah - Tea Gardens

Why Tea Gardens are Important?


Dilmah is the only vertically integrated global tea brand today. It means we know where our tea comes from, how exactly it is crafted and every minute detail of the tea that is picked, produced and packed. Why is this important? Simply because it allows us to keep the Dilmah promise of quality, authenticity and freshness, from the tea garden to the cup. It also ensures that the tea we offer is grown and produced with utmost respect to the environment and those who work in our plantations and their families are looked after. Dilmah - Twitter

Relatively cooler and wetter than the lowland plains, the region has two seasons – the wet and the dry. During the wet season the South-Western monsoons unload excessive amounts of rain while the dry season is marked by hot days and chilly, windy nights.
