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).
