Adawatte Estate ranked No 1 for second consecutive year

Adawatte Estate, Lunugala, managed by Finlays Tea Estates, Sri Lanka, has once again secured the No 1 spot in the Uva Medium category for the season 2008, in addition to an all time high cumulative sale average of Rs 332.73 per Kg for any estate in the Uva planting district, its broker, John Keells (JK) said said.

“Adawatte was able to achieve these feats due to it's remarkable consistency in maintaining the highest standards of manufacture and topping the market with the greatest regularity, throughout the 12 month period,” according to a JK statement.

It also has achieved an all time record price for an OP1 @ Rs 1240 per kg, and a BOP1 grade @ Rs 960 per Kg. Adawatte is renowned for high quality pure orthodox teas, possessing delicate liquoring characteristics particularly during the Uva quality season.
