Minister of Plantation Industries Navin Dissanayaka and Minister of Youth Affairs and Southern Development Sagala Rathnayaka made the first offerings of new tea produced after the Sinhala and Hindu New Year to the Getabaru Raja Maha Viharaya in Kotapola recently.

The ceremony of making sacred offerings of the first tea produced in the southern province after the Sinhala and Hindu New Year to the Getabaru Raja Maha Viharaya was first held last year to celebrate Sri Lanka’s 150th year in the tea industry.

A large number of producers and growers of tea in the Galle and Matara districts attended the ceremony to make their offerings.
