St. Coombs Estate, located in Talawakelle, was acquired in 1928 to establish the Tea Research Institute and this has facilitated the TRI to undertake research work mainly on field experimentation as well as establishment of demonstration sites for grower education. Even with such use of the estate, it continues to perform as a viable commercial unit. Presently, the St. Coombs tea has achieved a leading mark, and ranks high among the best quality Sri Lankan tea. It covers a tea extent of 287.16 ha, and also has an outlying division, Lamiliere, with 175.10 ha of tea, with a total tea extent of 462.26 ha.
