Nicely terraced. Kinda reminds me of the "Bliss" wallpaper that comes with Windows XP. :D

The tea trees form a beautiful green carpet leading to the hill in the background. Thanks for a wonderful picture.

What a beautiful picture of the tea trees --- it's nice to see where the tea we drink is coming from :-)

I wish sky in Sri Lanka's hill country is less cloudy and more blue more often.

This pic is as refreshing as a cup of tea. :) What a lovely view! (This may be my new wallpaper!)

Ann said...

The Sri Lankan Dahlma tea is sold here.

An endless plush carpet indeed. A one that makes you wanna freely dash from one end to another.

Nicole,
Yes, this is one of the best parts of Sri Lanka.

Sankara,
Glad you like them.

Frieda,
Definitely the tea from this estate must be among the best in the world.

Sachira,
Yes, a blue sky would make this picture a perfect one. Yes, it is very difficult to see clear sky in the wet part of the central highlands.

Amaris,
Glad you like it that much! Thanks for selecting it for your wall paper! You must taste a tea cup with a similar view in front of you :)

Ann,
Yes, Dilmah tea is world famous!
