The Greenfield Tea Estate specializes in ORGANIC Fair traded Ceylon Teas. The organic tea project commenced in 1992. The estate nestles among the hills on the southern edge of the Uva Highlands of Sri Lanka (Thotulagala, Haputale), at an altitude of 5000-6000ft where the climate is cool and the air beautifully clear. Roses and jasmine grow around the tea factory, and their fragrance is backed by the heady smell of newly processed tea. Looking down from the estate over emerald carpets of tea, the hot and dusty southern plains of Sri Lanka stretch out before you and on clear days the coast shimmers in the far distance. We produce some of the finest teas whilst maintaining two other priorities besides exceptional organic tea: people and the environment. The tea estate is inspected annually by Control Union(The Netherlands). Greenfield Teas are fragrant and sweet. The Northeast and Southwest monsoons add exceptional flavour, aroma and texture to these classic Uva teas. The Northeast monsoon winds travel across the Indian Ocean, picking up moisture from the Bay of Bengal and creating clouds that pour rain over the Uva Province as the clouds lift to go over the mountains. The Northeastern monsoons take place from December to early March when the surface high-pressure system is strongest. The Southwestern summer monsoons occur from June through September.
