Where Kindfulness grows
Ceylon, the name given to Sri Lanka by colonists, is the land known for superior tea and spices. By reclaiming control over the tea trade, Dilmah is repairing the consequences of 500 years of colonial exploitation in every possible way. That’s why a cup of Dilmah tea is also known as a “Cup of Kindness.”
Currently, Dilmah owns 33 tea plantations in Sri Lanka. In this section, they are described so that you can see how different things are done here compared to usual practices.
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.
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.
