Healing

One person, one community, one forest, one flavorful sip at a time.

We grow tea organically

and regeneratively in a land surrounded by forests.

Kaley Teas capture the healing 

goodness and mystical flavors of the forests.

We handpick and handcraft tea, as folklore has it,

with the healing palms of our artisans.

Our artisans enhance the healing goodness and flavours of Kaley Tea.

As our artisan communities live in harmony with the forest,

she rejuvenates and embraces all of us with her healing powers.

Kaley exist
to nature healing.

This is our purpose

Let’s reconnect

with the healing power of forests and begin ourselves.

is good for you, is good for communities,

Our Story in a Nutshell

Healing one person

From seed to sip, we capture the healing goodness and flavours of the forest, and of tea

We source tea seeds from 100-year-old tea trees in the wild and grow tea organically and regeneratively alongside multiple crops in a forest setting. We harvest the finest tea leaves that have the highest levels of health-giving properties. We handcraft tea, as folklore has it, with the healing palms of our artisans. We make tea in extremely small quantities and pack within a day of plucking to guarantee quality and freshness. Our founder tastes every batch of tea to personally assures you of the promise we make. We share knowledge of the healing properties of tea and promote a meditatively relaxed culture of brewing and drinking tea, to heal your mind and body.    
Healing one community

We inspire our artisan communities to live and work in harmony with the forest and each other.

We are continuously upgrading housing and sanitation facilities and supply water that originate from natural springs. We offer food and groceries at discounted rates. We support our workers with financial assistance to purchase capital items to enhance their quality of life. We support our workers’ children with life skills and education through an enrichment programme. We share economic benefits with residents of neighbouring villages by sourcing all our transport requirements and some of our construction work from them.
Healing one forest

We cultivate in a forest eco-system and live and work in harmony with the forest.

We preserve 23 acres of our land as a rainforest. We are researching and further developing the forest eco-system in partnership with The Wildlife and Nature Protection Society (WNPS) of Sri Lanka. We are also converting our tea garden to an Agro-forest under the guidance of world-renowned Systems Ecologist, Dr. Ranil Senanayake. We nurture 3 streams that surround our land and multiple springs that originate from the forest.

We grow multiple plant species to protect soil from run-off, maintain over 3Kms of stone terraced and harvest 20 million liters of rainwater in a man-made lake. We grow cover crops to conserve and regenerate soil and cultivate diverse crops to naturally enhance the nutrients in the soil. We produce our own bio-fertiliser to further enrich soil.

We installed roof top solar and supply energy to the national grid. We also installed a weather and soil station to enable the efficient use of natural resources. We purchase and upgrade used equipment to extend the life cycle of assets. We use bamboo, cob, and other natural materials for construction alongside re-cycled and re-purposed materials, thereby reducing our overall carbon footprint.
