Matara is the Southern-most tea producing region in Sri Lanka. Like its other cousins, Matara is also visited by high amounts of rainfall ideal for growing tea. Lumbini Estate, Matara’s most popular tea garden, is a family owned farm est. in 1984. Since then, Lumbini Estate has been awarded many times for outstanding tea and industry work (including sustainable farming practices). I’ve run across their teas distributed from a couple of different vendors here in the States.
