Grown on the eastern slopes of the Central Mountains, this black tea yields a bold and crisp infusion of deep amber that lingers on the palate with delicate notes of astringency. A refreshing cup for the morning or afternoon. The aromatic notes include fresh, sappy wood, plum fruits, molasses through to spice, pepper and mint. Grown 3,000 to 5,000 feet up on the eastern slopes of Sri Lanka's central mountains, teas from the Uva district have quite a distinctive flavour and pungency and are widely used in many blends. They also deserve to be enjoyed as a self drinking tea, especially during the Uva quality season from July to September each year, which is when we select our teas. Uva is Sri Lanka’s remotest province, access to its provincial capital, Badulla, is only possible over steep, winding mountain roads. Uva plantations are exposed to the winds of both northeast and southwest monsoons, believed to endow the tea produced there with a special, unmistakable character and exotically aromatic flavour.
