Our remarkable portfolio of tea plantations is what makes Mabroc so unique.
From mist-covered mountains to sheltered valleys; from sun kissed hillsides to rolling plains, our tea plantations enjoy a wide range of climate conditions which allows us to produce our extensive range of Premium Ceylon teas. From delicate high grown varieties to the more robust teas at lower elevations.
Just as they have been doing for almost 200 years.
And each one has a story to tell that transcends both world and local events. Some of which have passed into local folklore via ‘story tales’.
In fact, many of our employee’s families can claim to have worked on the same tea plantation for generations.
Which adds further to the strong bonds between us all.
Something we need to have when over 12.5 million Kg is being picked each year from over 9,600 hectares of prime tea plantation land.
It’s this dedication to our collective heritage; this commitment to quality and a true passion for producing the best that’s gained us many prestigious awards over the years and which will continue to drive us forward in the years to come.
