Sri Lanka / Kandy
Small Organic Farmers Association (SOFA) is a Sri Lankan cooperative, located in the mountain ranges of the Kandy region. The tea gardens enjoy a tropical climate, tempered by the coolness of the altitude. The alternation of a dry season and a monsoon season creates ideal conditions for obtaining teas of great finesse. Founded in 1997, this dynamic group with which we have been working since its inception, today brings together nearly 800 producers of teas, but also of spices and aromatic plants, all certified in organic farming and a growing number in biodynamics. Black teas are produced in Highgrown, while green teas and spices are produced more in Middlegrown.
