When producing our organic, fair trade and biodynamic black teas, we only use two leaves & the bud harvested from the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). Black tea is the most oxidized type of tea, which means it is richer in colour and more penetrating in flavour. It also has the highest caffeine content of any type of tea, and contains antioxidants which helps in the prevention of many diseases. Unlike other types of tea (such as green, oolong or white), black tea retain its flavour for several years. Our black tea comes in dust, fanning, broken and leafy grades as well in the form of extracts. These tea grades are sold as bulk tea or in consumer packs, either in their natural state or after flavouring.
The consumption of black tea has a long history across the world, and enriches many traditions and cultures. It is served in hot or cold forms, and without sweetness or additives, contain a negligible amount of calories. Because our teas are organic, our customers have the added peace of mind that their cup of tea is free of harmful chemical residues that could deter from the benefits of drinking tea.

ORGANIC COCONUT PRODUCTS
We in Sri Lanka know the coconut tree as the ‘tree of life’. This is because the local people, probably for as long as we have been on an island, have used each an every part of the tree, from root to husk to leaves, for some purpose or another. As such, it is deeply respected product. Each day, the health benefits of coconut gain traction globally (coconut oil is now considered one of the healthiest oils to consume due to its medium chain triglyceride [MCT] composition) and its irreplaceable position in the vegan marketplace has been established, we are proud to provide an ever expanding range of coconut products.

The demand for fresh ingredients is ever increasing across the globe. However, fresh products are difﬁcult to transport across the globe, particularly if they are made without the use harmful chemicals and preserving agents. This led to the birth of our IQF (Instant Quick Freeze) facility. The very rapid freezing leaves the cellular structure of the produce intact, so that once its thawed, the cell composition is restored, along with the freshness, ﬂavor and nutritive value. The processing plant that carries out this production is a BRC certiﬁed facility, one of the handful of similar plants in the country, and was recently awarded with an ‘A’ rating. A large variety if items (e.g., fresh fruit, veggies and herbs) are lined up for processing at this plant.
