The Tea Factory was established in 1989 and accounts for a journey of three decades. It is owned and managed by Anil Alwis, a renowned tea planter whose passion for tea manufacturing has alleviated its product and process to maintain the high standards which accounts for Pothotuwa teas consistently being sold amongst the premium Low Grown factories and to date occupying the Number one position amongst factories that have sold a commercial quantity.
