Founder's Message

A person with multifaceted experience gained in the tea industry and inherited from his forefathers of two previous generations. He is a scion of an icon in the tea industry and was nurtured in it from an early age during the tenure of his school days whilst assisting his father and grandfather in their tea business and plantations. His career began from the scratch by offering samples to the exporting companies of those days and gradually with that exposure he learnt the tea export trade. With time he established his own company and did his very first shipment in the early 90s.

He was trained in the delicate art of tea tasting by some of the best experts in the industry. He has blossomed to be an expert, having an exquisite flair in tasting and blending teas to meet the most exacting requirements of his buyers.

He currently offers his services as Consultant Master Tea Taster to various tea companies located in Sri Lanka, Middle East and East Africa. This man is an “unsung hero of the tea industry”.
