This refreshing tea is steeped in tradition. Our Zen Mint blend was harvested from the Kandy District and refined in a factory established there in 1950. Kandy was the last redoubt of the Sri Lankan Kings. The area is accessible only through steep mountain passes, and its isolation has ensured the preservation of the cultural traditions of the Sinhalese people for centuries. From this historical place, once an important center of Buddhism, this fresh, spicy, cool tea has taken root and flourished. When you sip this tea, enriched with mint leaves and orange in color, you will take a walk through time.
