Tales of the Tea Trade : Forest Tea 

Forest Hill Tea Company is a handmade artisan specialty tea company with the concept of forest friendly tea production, environmental sustainability & community empowerment. Located at the foot of the Adam's Peak in Sabaragamuwa Province, Sri Lanka they produce a range of high quality forest-friendly handmade artisanal teas.  
.
Buddikha  is a professional tea plater who worked for larger plantation companies for over 17 years and left to pursue the Forest Hill Tea project 4 years ago.   
.

.
Buddikha established his
 company with the explicit mission to maximize local income-generation, while promoting environmental stewardship in less-developed parts of Sri Lanka. 'Part of our responsibility is to empower the women of the village, small scale tea farmers and local industries of the area. We employ village women and ensure the sustainable skill development and living standard improvement by sharing the profit percentage with them. Some of our packagings are locally produced by villagers providing an extra income source to their families. The company aims to do so by employing and training the local workforce (and neighbouring out-growers) to produce high value-added products and services, using locally available products. The farmers are encouraged to practice reforestation and forest friendly practices to preserve forest and wide biodiversity, while protecting and restoring local forests, water systems and other ecosystem service. The farmers holding hands with us are paid high rates for the tea leaves'
.
.
Looking to the future : [the aim is that] each cup of Forest Hill Tea will benefit root level farmers. The company wants to become a role-model for other smallholders, demonstrating how they can produce and sell their own value-added products. 
With wages and other costs increasing, the Sri Lankan tea industry will not be able to survive if it keeps producing low-priced teas for the commodity tea market. We would like to train hundreds of tea cooperatives and small farmers to produce hand-made teas – generating much higher incomes for farmers and workers in the tea sector We also want to promote the availability of small-batch hand-made teas from Sri Lanka in leading tea boutiques around the word, as a way to boost the overall brand image and price-realization of all Sri Lankan teas.
