About The Kandy Region
Kandy is, in many respects, the original home of the Ceylon Tea industry. It lies on the Kandy plateau in northern Sri Lanka, while its regional capital of the same name finds itself in a low-lying valley. The Tea estates, meanwhile, are predominantly located across the surrounding hills in Nilambe, Hantane, Pussellawa, Gampola and Hewaheta.
When Sri Lanka (then known as Ceylon) was under British rule, Kandy Tea would become the last surviving indigenously-ruled state on the island. It eventually surrendered in 1815, at which point it became a hub for Coffee-growing.
However, in 1869, a plant-based disease called coffee-rust decimated the industry, bringing with it the potential for economic ruin.
Yet all was not lost. Years earlier, a Scotsman named John Dodd had planted the first ever Ceylon Tea at his Loolecondera Estate in Kandy. Following the plant disease outbreak, his endeavours proved vital to saving the livelihoods of former Coffee farmers.
Today, Kandy has become one of the most renowned districts for top-quality Ceylon Tea - as our Ceylon Orange Pekoe Kandy stands testament.
