Our Tea Estates

Plantation Gate Tea

Our Tea Pluckers

Picker’s Pocket, brings you the story behind your morning cuppa. Our teas carefully hand selected from Sri Lanka’s smaller plantations. They are organically grown, delicious, ethical, hand-crafted and community driven.

We hope to increase the variety of amazing teas available to tea-lovers around the world, and to increase the incomes of small farmers and workers who grow our teas.

Since artisanal teas are produced by hand by the farmers themselves and sold direct to some of the finest retailers and restaurants around the world, this will be great for farmers’ incomes.

Artisanal Tea

Brewing the Best

All over the world, discerning consumers are switching from mass-produced blends to artisanal products – from instant coffee to single-origin roasts, from bland mass-produced beers to micro-brews, from processed “cheese-products” to delicious farm-fresh cheeses, from blended scotches to single-malts, and so on across food and beverage categories.

Mama D's

Home of Rebel Tea

Located on the outskirts of the Sinharaja Forest Reserve.

Our teas from this estate have a dense yet smooth taste. Each sip is a little different. First there is chocolate. Maybe some cinnamon. Then pepper. Cloves, nutmeg, ginger and lemongrass. The complex flavours take the senses on a journey, each spice telling its own story.

No chemicals, no artificial fertilisers or anything else man-made that has the intention of trying to hasten nature.

Organic Plantation

Amongst the Leaves

We have spent many days at the larger our of our estates, Haldamulla Plantation. We watch, we learn & we brew their fine, full flavoured, organic Ceylon teas. It is here that our families have helped the pluckers, while learning first hand the difference between black, green & white teas and how the oxidation processs enables those differences.
