1. Greens or leaves
2. The color green
I was working long hours in tech and pretty stressed. I was looking for natural ways to nourish myself and be balanced, the way my Amma did for me when I was growing up in Sri Lanka. I craved this green, healthy, delicious Sri Lankan breakfast drink called Kola Kanda that my Amma would make for us everyday, but sitting on the West coast, far from where I grew up, I didn't have the time or the ingredients for it.
The quest to solve today's wellness needs naturally, and the opportunity to increase cultural representation in this industry, evolved into our super yummy, ethically-sourced goodies you see today.

Ceylon Black Tea (camellia sinensis)
We source the Ceylon Tea for our Sri Lankan Milk Tea, from two geographical areas. Our higher-elevation tea comes from Ella, a lush are beloved by hikers and nature enthusiasts alike. Our low-elevation tea is from Deniyaya, which is in a warmer climate near UNESCO world heritage forest, Sinharaja.
The tea leaves in your cup were grown and plucked by smallholder farmers - some owning just a few tea bushes in their backyards. The leaves are then directly transported to a local tea factory, rolled and torn into loose leaf tea. From there, we blend it into our Sri Lankan Milk Tea. No auctions, distributors or mass exporters here; our tea goes from farm to factory to your cup. Our isn't just direct, its traceable - we tell you exactly which farmers grew the tea in your box of Sri Lankan Milk Tea.
