Mahagastotte O.P.1 (Nuwara Eliya)



£2.29£10.50

A superb orange pekoe from some of Sri Lanka’s loftiest plantations high above the clouds, around 6000 ft above sea level.  Sip and enjoy it’s floral bouquet, delicate and mellow yet with a twist of lemon zest.  This black tea with greenish tones is best drunk without milk, though a slice of lemon or lime we found rather good!
