Description

From this well established plantation (circa 1880) on the Madulsima hills in South Eastern Sri Lanka, we have a fine tea indeed! Grown to Rain forest Alliance standards, it  is a fully oxidised and rolled whole leaf black tea. Bright and fresh with notes of apple and slight woodiness makes a rather delicious cuppa any time of the day.
Best drunk black or perhaps with a slice of lime.
