History – This plantation has belonged to my family for the last 150 years.
It was a part of a larger plantation of 2200 acres which was nationalized in 1974. We are now left with 150 acres.
1000 acres of the plantation was taken over by the government when the British Plantations were nationalized.
1000 acres was lost by my grandfather on the roll of the dice.
He was the President of the Suicide club-which was so called because it was purely an informal association of gamblers.
The land was planted in tea by me.
The Tea Factory was developed with machinery and equipment purchased, transported and re-assembled.
From the Nuwara Eliya region of Sri Lanka.
It is an unique facility. A working living Museum, making the best tea in the world with 150 year old machinery!
