Noori Tea Factory
Named after the first daughter of the factory’s founder, the Noori Tea Factory has been operational since 1928. Its creation was not easy. Thick jungle and hilly terrain resulted in a six-year construction project. Nevertheless, the owner, Francis Ademalai, believed the property brought good luck because of the birth of his daughter.
Located in the Planting District of Kegalle, the Noori Tea Factory is supported by the surrounding villages of Deraniaygala and Polgaswatte, where the majority of the population depends for their incomes on tea planting and cultivation. Steady rainfall and fertile soils make this part of Sri Lanka an ideal location for a tea estate, which is surrounded by an abundance of flora and fauna, as well as gorgeous waterfalls.
