our story

My great, great grandfather believed that every cup of tea is a journey to be shared. To a place. To a feeling. To good health. To wellness and togetherness.

From planting the first family estate in the cool Sri Lankan highlands over 100 years ago, it was his dedication to creating the perfect cup of tea – one that brings about a state of shared contentment, that has inspired our family’s craft for four generations.

Using only the finest single-origin ingredients from estates in Sri Lanka, we draw upon ancient Ayurvedic traditions to create small batch, single-origin teas and tisanes that are healthy for your mind, body and soul. So, take a sip, create a connection, start a ritual and enjoy whatever state you find yourself in at Governor’s Estate.
