Ceylon (Black Estate Tea)
Produced on the island nation of Sri Lanka (previously called Ceylon....) this classic black tea is the perfect tea for an afternoon tea party. It's lively, yet smooth, with delicate floral notes.
The alchemy of the sun, rain and land in Sri Lanka presents the ideal climate for the cultivation of tea. The tea industry was introduced to Ceylon in the 1860's. Since then, the name "Ceylon tea" has been a sign of quality throughout the world. This particular Ceylon is from Koslande, a medium sized estate situated in the Haputale Mountain Range in the region of Uva. This is Sri Lanka's highest elevation tea growing region and is renowned for some of the finest teas in the world.
