What type of tea do we use, how do we flavor the tea and why do we use natural flavors?
Firstly... we only use high grown teas from the top 3 tea growing
regions of Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva. These three
high-grown districts produce flavorful teas that have classic ‘Ceylon’
tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavor notes,
touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and, most importantly
- perfect for use as the base tea of our flavored teas. (We have tested
teas from various other origins around the world as base stock for our
flavored teas, but none of these teas made the grade.) Dimbula and the
western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during
Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their
peak in July/Aug. This ‘dual peak period’ allow us to buy the best for
our flavored tea blends several times during the year, ensuring top
quality and freshness.
Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling
boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the
boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes
according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character
on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea
