In addition to growers, Walters Bay also feels a duty to the land.
Our tea nursery – one of the largest in Sri Lanka – provides us with the space to service both.
Established in 2012, it’s here that we refine our teas to optimize quality, grower engagement, and sustainability through the following extension service programs and techniques:
- Developing new varietals for distribution among community growers
- Ensuring varietals suit microclimatic conditions
- Educating community growers on sustainable tea-growing practices
Equal parts lab and school, the Walters Bay nursery serves a critical role in meeting the needs of our growers, our land, and, ultimately, our customers.
