This is a fine tea produces an infusion of medium body with an intense, aromatic character. The typical Uva district flavour is in evidence, with dark fruit, molasses and fragrant woody notes providing a deep character, in balance with citrus fruit peel and mentholated tones. Grown 3,000 to 5,000 feet up on the eastern slopes of Sri Lanka's central mountains, teas from the Uva district have 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. 1303
