Delta Estate

Initially started in 1852 as a coffee estate, Delta was converted to tea due to the undesirable growing conditions for coffee. Today, Delta has been established as one of the best CTC factories in Sri Lanka. The tea produced and manufactured at Delta Estate is prominent in the local market as it withholds elements of the pekoe dust grade; one of the strongest blends available. Tea connoisseurs from around the world are recognising the estate as the demand for exports grows year on year.
