This is the great ‘Champagne’ tea area, with teas ranging from 6,000 feet to over 7,000 feet in height. It borders the South western bulge of Dimbula, Maskeliya and Dickoya and takes over across the central highland mass across to Uva in the East. The district produces wonderfully balanced light teas with aromas in the Western quality season, with a F.B.O.P grade the flavours can be quite pungent, but the liquors are of a light yellow colour, bright, clear & crisp.
