    Organic tea cultivation in Sri Lanka

    Sri Lankan tea planters have prioritised sustainability and protection of the ecosystem that incorporates tea gardens since the beginning of the Ceylon Tea Industry. In keeping with the traditions of sustainability and conservation, Ceylon Tea cultivators have now adopted organic tea production to provide a purer flavour that is also better for the environment.

    Guided by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movement (IFOAM) and certified by USDA Organic, ECOCERT IMO, and Control Union Certifications, Organic Ceylon Tea is free of synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. Organic Ceylon Tea also complies with Japanese Agriculture Standards (JAS), European Economic Community (EEC 2092 / 91) certifications (EU).

    Organic Ceylon Tea cultivation combines traditional knowledge, agricultural innovation and science to benefit the shared environment, promote fair relationships and good quality of life for all stakeholders to tea plantation workers, to consumers and people and animals who share the same biosphere.

    Benefits of Organic Ceylon Tea

    The overall advantages that organic Ceylon Tea offers to health, farmers, and environment can be innumerable;

    Good for Health

Due to its purity of flavour and composition, Organic Ceylon Tea provides the tea drinkers with the fullest benefits that Pure Ceylon Tea can offer.

    Good for Cultivators

    Since organic tea farming does not require administration of chemical fertilizer and pesticides, it does not expose tea farmers and plantation workers to the adverse effects of toxic chemicals.

    In addition, many organic tea plantations in Sri Lanka are small and medium scale operations and organic Ceylon Tea cultivation allows them to compete in global platforms and enable them with more economic capacity.

    Good for Environment

    Since tea is often grown in higher elevations in Sri Lanka, chemical pesticides and fertilizers used in tea plantations tend to affect the groundwater cycles as well as streams and rivers. They also have an adverse effect on the biodiversity of the surrounding ecosystems. Use of pesticides imbalances an ecosystem by killing not only the harmful insects, and microbes but also their natural predators, such as spiders and ladybugs, as well as bacteria and fungi required for soil functions.

    Not using chemicals allows the delicate balance of the ecosystem to remain the same which in turn benefits the tea plantation in the long run.

    Organic Tea Cultivation in Sri Lanka

    Sri Lankan organic tea cultivators rely on natural ecological processes, biodiversity and agriculture cycles adapted to local climate and ecological conditions to gain a better yield. Today the country has a multitude of smaller, organic single-origin tea producing estates throughout the country. Mostly found in Dimbula and Uva regions, organic tea cultivation is still in the fledgeling state in Sri Lanka compared to the larger Ceylon Tea Industry, which is one of the most valuable in the world.

    Most of the organic tea estates in Sri Lanka have transitioned to fully organic and biodynamic production adopting recycling of resources through the use of cover crops, inter-cropping, and animal and plant waste recycling.

    In addition, some of the tea plantations have reached beyond the implementation of environmentally sustainable methods to integrate indigenous plant species within the plantation, which has also encouraged the return of native fauna to these ecosystems as per Rainforest Alliance guidelines for sustainable management.

    Fairtrade Agriculture Practices

    Most of the organic tea producers in Sri Lanka have also adopted fair trade agriculture practices, and are committed to building a healthy and developing community among its plantation workers.

    Working under the guidance of Fairtrade International plantation management conduct community and livelihood development programs, which improve the housing, medical and educational facilities of the worker communities.
