Did you know that Sri Lanka once shared a name with the tea that it is now famous for? The tiny island nation was called Ceylon until the end of British Colonialism in 1948. Sri Lanka is no larger than the state of Indiana, yet it boasts the fourth highest volume of tea production in the world. Sri Lanka’s tea quality can be attributed to a climate favorable to tea production: humidity, cool temperatures, and rainfall.
We have recently begun to carry some wonderful new Sri Lankan teas that we are so excited to be able to offer. Check out the list below for details on some of our newest teas!
Sri Lankan Vintage- A smokey amber brew with a hint of sweet-potato, this new tea blend consists of 3 separate teas. It is sure to appeal to the tea-adventurer in search of novel tea experiences.
Govenor’s Sri Lankan- This award-winning Ceylon tea is produced in limited quantities by a single family-owned estate in Sri Lanka. Two whole leaves and one bud from the plant’s tips are harvested, then hand-rolled into a ring to make this tea.
Sri Lankan Golden Tips– This top-shelf tea uses only hand-picked, very young, tender tips of select tea bushes. The leaf has a light, golden color that is velvety with fine white down. This prized tea has a smooth, sweet taste that tea novices and connoisseurs alike will love.
