Tea Manufacturer

More an art, than a science, we process the "green leaf" into finished product in our own processing plants. We primarily manufacture black tea in 2 different forms - CTC tea, and Orthodox tea. We make small quantities of Orthodox green tea on a seasonal basis.

Our processing plants make about 1.5 million kg of premium CTC tea, and 0.3 million kg of high quality Orthodox tea annually, and employ a workforce of 50 full time staff.
