You can buy Nuwara Eliya Tea here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. This is a type of Ceylon Tea (also known as Sri Lanka Tea) from the region of the same name.
The district most famously produces Black Tea, although Green Tea is available as well. Each product in our expansive range is packed fresh to order, ensuring quality and consistency with every cuppa brewed.
Nuwara Eliya is the highest part of Sri Lanka at elevations of around 1,800 metres (6,200 feet) above sea level. It finds itself west of Uva Province and north of the city of Dambulla.
Much of the region consists of precipitous, jungle-clad terrain. Meanwhile, when it comes to Nuwara Eliya’s weather and climatic conditions, its air is cool and refreshing, its winds scented with eucalyptus and wild mint.
Most of Nuwara Eliya’s Tea gardens are situated in the highest parts of the district. The leaves from here are, therefore, perhaps unsurprisingly, considered high-grown varieties.
Production first began in the mid-19th century after a plant-based disease called Coffee Rust decimated the local Coffee crop. Ceylon Tea took its place, with Nuwara Eliya Tea now one of the most beloved around.
Unique environmental factors in Nuwara Eliya contribute to its Tea’s equally distinctive profile and characteristics. Connoisseurs tend to describe it as having a delicate, floral fragrance with a light and brisk taste.
Furthermore, according to the latest scientific research, frequent consumption could result in remarkable Nuwara Eliya Tea benefits. What more could you want from your new favourite brew?
