Most Sri Lanka tea plantations are located in the mountainous regions in the south of the country at altitudes from 1000 to 2700 m above sea level. All of them have their own individual characteristics. The hot wet climate of the plateau and foothills creates excellent conditions for year-round leaf harvesting. The best tea is obtained from the highest plantations in the center of the mountain range. Due to perfect climatic conditions, local tea has a delicate taste and aroma.
NUWARA ELYA is one of the highest tea-growing region in the world. Plantations are located at an altitude of 2400-2800 meters above sea level. The best tea is obtained in January-March. Tea leaves are harvested in the early morning, with the first dew. Tea from the Nuwara Eliya region is one of the most elite varieties in the world.
DIMBULA is located in the west of the island. The Dimbula Valley extends at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level. Tea plantations are located on the southeastern slopes of the mountains.
