Organic farm & factory

Our operations are housed within two certified factories, both HACCP and organic certified, strategically located in Ywangan Township, Southern Shan State, and Pyigyitagon Township, Mandalay, Myanmar. Together, these facilities boast a remarkable capacity, capable of processing 144 tonnes of organic raw tea and 39,824 tonnes of non-organic raw tea per year, ensuring top-notch quality and operational efficiency.

Our own tea farm, nestled in the picturesque Ywangan region of Southern Shan State, spans an impressive 400 acres. This agricultural haven, graced with majestic mountains and natural waterfalls, serves as a captivating tourist destination. The region is predominantly inhabited by the Shan, Danu, and Burmese ethnic groups. Among our dedicated farmers, the majority are Danu women, comprising 90% of our workforce. They are engaged in the cultivation of tea, coffee, and vegetables. Currently, we collaborate with 252 farmers, with each farm averaging a production of 10 viss (equivalent to 16.3kg) per acre.

Our tea offerings encompass a spectrum of quality grades, ranging from premium to middle grade. A substantial 80% of our raw materials are sourced from collectors. Furthermore, our tea farm doubles as a training centre for aspiring organic tea farmers, with future plans to transform it into a tea museum. The tea plants typically begin to flower from October to June, with harvesting taking place from April to September so if you wish to visit us take these seasons into consideration.

Join us on this journey of sustainability, taste, and tradition as we continue to grow and nurture Myanmar’s finest organic tea.
