Buy Ceylon Uva Tea Online
Uva is a Province in Sri Lanka situated to the east of its high plateaus in the wilder part of the island. The estates here lie between 900 and 1,500 metres (3,000-5,000 feet) above sea level.
Weather plays a significant role in the taste and quality of Uva Tea, with the plants being exposed to both northerly winds and the southwesterly monsoon systems. A rugged landscape, too, gives some gardens an advantage.
Despite its size, Uva is one of the most remote areas in the country; the provincial capital, Badulla, is only accessible via steep, winding mountain roads.
It is sparsely populated, which often means that locals rely heavily on the Tea industry. By choosing Uva Tea, then, you’re supporting the livelihoods of many. What’s more, you’re getting an infusion typically described as distinctly sweet and woody.
