New Vithanakande Ceylon OP1
Our Price: $5.00

The New Vithanakande tea estate is found in the low land hills outside of Colombo on the way to Kandy. Grown at a low altitude, this region is known for producing a stronger, yet more tropical tasting ceylon tea. New Vithanakande also happens to have their own website! http://www.vithanakandeteas.com/index.html.  We provide the OP1 grade of this tea, which has the malty citrus undertones and a tropical aroma as it brews. Sri Lanka truly provides a wide array of delicious teas!  As it can be quite full-bodied, Vithanakande handles both milk and sugar.

Sri Lanka is a very diverse country.  Not only are teas broken into regions, but they are also broken into altitudes.  This low level tea is grown around 2,000 ft above sea level.  

We would recommend one teaspoon of leaves if enjoying this tea in a mug (2 grams), or two if in a teapot (4-5 grams).
Decaffeinated Ceylon OP1
Our Price: $5.00

This decaffeinated tea carries the full-bodied nature of a Ceylon and can also take milk and sugar. The decaffeinating process filters the tea using CO2, which liberates the caffeine molecule while leaving the quality and taste intact.

With a hint of of a malty citrus, this tea is perfect after a meal, particularly if you're trying to decrease your caffeine intake.
Pettiagalla Dimbula Ceylon OP1
Our Price: $5.50

The Pettigalla tea estate is found in the Dimbulla region in the Balangoda district.  Grown at high level, this region is known for producing the quintessential Ceylon teas. Pettigalla offers the best Dimbulla tea experience.  With malty citrus undertones and a sweet floral aroma, this can only be described as one tasty tea!  As it can be quite full-bodied, Dimbulla handles both milk and sugar.

Sri Lanka is a very diverse country.  Not only are teas broken into regions, but they are also broken into altitudes.  This high level tea is grown around 4,000 ft above sea level.

Amba Lemongrass
Our Price: $6.50

Amba doesn't just grow tea, they also grow a field of Lemongrass! This hardy plant is actually perfect for the harsh conditions on Amba.  A Lemongrass relative (Manna grass) is used to prepare the tea fields before new plantings! (It helps to redistribute nitrogen in the soil, while aerating at the same time).

This Lemongrass is treated with the same level of care and respect that Amba treats its tea.  Careful hand harvested batches that are then dried, and hand cut into smaller pieces for a better brewing.

Great for culinary dishes too!
Idulgashinna Ceylon Green Organic
Our Price: $7.50

Grown in the esteemed Uva region, Idulgashinna offers a delicious organic fair-trade green tea.  While Sri Lanka is not normally known for green teas, this light brew offers a rich green flavor with a fruitiness that reminds us of lychees.  With a pan-drying finish it certainly can't be called delicate!

Idulgashinna is a small bio-dynamic tea estate, located above 3,000 feet. This organic estate is committed to fine teas while also  providing ethical jobs for its workers.  This estate is certainly one of the jewels of Sri Lanka, though often gets over-looked!
Amba Ceylon Chai
Our Price: $8.50

This chai comes from one of the few artisanal tea producers in Sri Lanka. Amba is also the finest example of terroir in Sri Lanka. We feel it accurately represents the Uva climate in this diverse country; the high altitude and harsh drought conditions this estate faces create a unique and unrivaled quality. These stressful growing conditions are then complimented with a fine level of plucking: one leaf and one bud. Rolled, fermented and dried, this tea receives a level of care that is close to devotion. What makes this chai really unique though, is that it is the most 'single origin' chai on the planet! With most of the ingredients originating on the Amba Estate

Amba is prized because of the unique, menthol almost eucalyptus aroma from the leaves. Add a maraschino cherry sweetness with the classic citrus undertones of Sri lanka and you experience a very complex cup of tea! Subtle spices add to this complexity and give a spiced tea that gives Chai a more refined nature.

Uva is one of the many premier tea regions of Sri Lanka. This highly mountainous region proves ideal for tea. Across the valley from Amba one can see Lipton's Seat, one of the best view points in Sri Lanka.

While not certified; we know Amba to be an organic tea estate. Located at the top of the Ravana Ella falls, Amba looks out over a dramatic tableau of the Sri Lankan mountains, and is truly the perfect place for growing tea.

One of the classics, this is what an Ceylon chai can and should taste like! Chai is traditionally served with milk and sugar. But we enjoy this as is too!
