Pure Ceylon black tea | Loose leaf
Dimbulla Region | Orange Pekoe (OP)
Grown in the hub of the largest Dimbulla tea-growing area in Sri Lanka, our Island Heritage blend offers a flowery, mild taste and boasts an orange appearance. This tea was plucked from tea bushes that were planted during the coffee era, around 1884-1885, so you can taste true Dimbulla tea-growing history in your cup. The blend features two distinctive leaves and a bud subjected to natural withering and then gently rolled in a well-type miniature roller. Afterwards, the tea is sun dried and passed through a conventional dryer to eliminate moisture. The last step, of course, is finding its way to your cup.
