Buy Ruhunu Ceylon Loose Tea Online
This region is in the lower-lying districts of Southwest Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon). It is a land of low hills and plains, good soils and favourable climatic conditions.
These qualities combined make for a fertile environment for growing exceptional Ceylon Tea. Yet, despite its unmistakable allure, production only began here during the 20th century. This might be why few people know of it for Tea-growing.
What it lacks in name recognition, though, it makes up for in outstanding quality. Black Tea from this area often has a punchy flavour, particularly those from the Lumbini and Ratnapura Estates.
If you travel towards the east, the terrain turns into jungle historically inhabited by wildlife such as elephants, leopards, wild boars and bears. Today, several game reserves exist to preserve its nature.
