Sacks and chests of tea leaves, ready for sale. There are more than 1,000 tea factories in Sri Lanka, and 95% of it is exported. Tea leaves are auctioned off to international brokers who then sell them off to tea manufacturers such as Lipton, Tetley, Twinnings, Ahmad, etc. So what you see here is OEM tea, the original thing!
