Lumbini Tea Factory, located in the Matara district of Sri Lanka's Southern Province is by all counts a model for the global tea industry. Not only are their teas utterly spectacular, but also their commitment to safe practices, sustainability, and the environment is second to none.

Lumbini's attention to detail has seen it earn a merit award as the best tea factory in Sri Lanka by the STI, Specialty Tea Institute of America, the highest price ever at the Colombo auction, and a further award from the STI, a gold award for the tea we are offering here.

Elmwood owner and former STI Advisory Board Member Bruce Richardson was part of the official delegation that traveled to Sri Lanka to present the award.

This Lumbini FBOPFEXS, Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe Extra Special is one of their finest examples of exceptional tea making. The finished leaf is exceptionally well crafted and very stylish, overflowing with golden and silver tips. The cup is likewise superb with an amber liquor opening up to a refreshing medium body, mouth-filling astringency, and delicate notes of plum on the finish. Lumbini's Ceylon Gold is an exceptional tea from an exceptional source.

Lumbini composts all its organic waste to be used as a natural fertilizer and plants trees to help maintain their surrounding forests. The estate is located near the Sinharaja Forest, one of Asia's last virgin rainforests. In short, Lumbini is a top-of-the-line tea supplier.
