Business information

AMBA is an award winning community-run social enterprise. Our organic farm nestles at 1000m, above the Ravana-Ella waterfalls in the Uva mountains. Our goal is to maximise local incomes, while protecting the environment. Our motto: “If it grows, turn it into a product!”. We want to show local farmers that, rather than selling raw produce, they can make higher-value products by hand.


We were one of the first estates in Sri Lanka to start hand-rolling teas; our teas have been sold in many of the world’s most famous shops and restaurants such as Harney & Sons, Fortnum & Mason and Claridges. All our teas are hand-made, using only the finest leaves and buds. Like fine wines, our teas vary according to terroir, cultivar, and season.
