The Sri Lanka Tea Board has confirmed that annual tea production in 2013, was the highest ever at 340 million kilograms, 3.6% more than the 2012 figure of 328 million kilos.

The previous record of 331 million kilos was achieved in 2010.

This year's figures was released relatively late and would have included most estate returns.

The crop figure is an exceptional achievement considering the adverse weather that restricted production from Western High Grown districts from May to July.
