Our Story

Basilur Tea was founded by Dr. Gamini Abeywickrama, an individual with decades of experience in producing and exporting the finest quality Ceylon tea. Dr. Gamini wanted to give the entire world the gift of Ceylon tea. However, he wanted to go about this in a special way. He wanted tea to become more than just a beverage. He wanted tea to become an experience. Therefore, he partnered with Mr. Andrey Mareev, a leading creative director, whos magical powers have gifted the world with some of the best tea designs and supporting materials that the tea industry has seen. Through this partnership, Basilur Tea was born!

At Basilur we take pride in the highest quality Ceylon tea and unique products that we offer, which have been carefully developed over a decade of excellence and innovation. Through cutting edge technology, creativity and constant research and development, our products personify the luxurious elements of the finest teas on earth.
