Where Kindfullness grows
Every Dilmah tea drinker supports the empowerment of a former colony. The gift of self-determination, the freedom to improve society from within and to restore biodiversity and nature is a powerful answer to many issues mankind is facing today. Growing kindness, a teacup at the time.
Our Tea Estates
All proceeds of Dilmah’s tea sales flow back to it’s origin; Sri Lanka. It supports the work of the MJF Charitable Foundation and Dilmah Conservation. It changes the lives of the people living on and around the tea estates and lifts them out of poverty with education, healthcare, elderly care, disabled and underprivileged, supporting small entrepreneurs and so on. Dilmah Conservation initiates and maintains dozens of projects pertaining to ecology, biodiversity and wildlife protection.
Dunkeld Tea Estate
Many families live on and around our Dunkeld plantation, and because you are buying from a tea company with Sri Lankan owners, all proceeds go back into the local economy, so your purchase helps take care of its many families and villagers.
Craighead Tea Estate
Your purchase makes a big difference since you buy from a Sri Lankan company that owns the entire production chain (from bush to bag) adding love and care for the people and planet to every step. Let’s visit Tea Estate Craighead.
Speak of a labour of love
Established during the late 19th century in Colonial Ceylon, nowadays the beauty of the tea gardens, alongside the thousands of tea pickers, speak of a labour of love. Each day, thousands of tea pickers with nimble fingers handpick the two leaves and bud which is then manufactured in the traditional way, with the art of the teamaker and nature’s best coming together which also helps the tea pickers and their families. This is what we speak of when we speak of a labour of love. At the Imboolpitiya Estate you can find an eye clinic.
