The Vithanakanda Estate is highly acclaimed for its high quality, award-winning teas. There is pride in the tea from seed to cup, from farmer to drinker. Just a walk through the halls of this estate will give you a glimpse into the world of their success, where their various awards are proudly displayed on the walls. Our Afternoon Ritual blend produces a sweet honey fragrance and appears a warm russet hue in the cup. Aromatic and fine, this tea is the perfect afternoon blend.
