Harvesting altitude: up to 600 meters above sea level (Low Grown)
Low Grown tea gardens at altitudes up to 600 meters above sea level are exposed to more intense and longer sunlight, the climate is dry and warm. The lowland infusions are therefore darker to ruby red in colour, stronger and more woody in flavour.
Harvesting period: May 2021
Ceylon tea is harvested all year round, however, it is harvested during the quality season when the tea plant thrives exceptionally well due to the perfect climate and the estates produce their best teas. The seasonal tea season is associated with the monsoons that hit the southeast of the island in January and February, where the Low Grown gardens are located. The central province with its High Grown gardens has its quality season between June and September.
