Kenilworth Estate

The Kenilworth Tea Estate is located between two major rivers in central Sri Lanka: the Kelani and the Mahaweli. The estate was planted by British colonial rulers, hence the name refers to the 12th-century castle of the same name in Warwickshire, England. Kenilworth teas are known for their large, unadulterated leaves with a rich flavour.
