Why Ceylon Single Estate Teas?
High grown Ceylon tea tastes different; more extreme flavour with a smooth, non-bitter taste.
The incredible diversity of climate in the 'hill country', the monsoonal rains, the sunshine and sea winds, produce a range of purely natural flavours that distinguish pure Ceylon tea from other teas.
Ceylon single estate teas are some of the most exciting teas produced for the discerning tea drinker. As nature intended, single estate teas are full of seasonal flavour. Smooth tasting with delectable flavours, never bitter or harsh.The finest Ceylon teas are generally acknowledged to come from estates located over 4000 ft. The aroma of the teas from this region are unforgettable. If packed immediately after manufacture, you should be able to savour this aroma when you open a packet of high grown Ceylon tea.
