Ceylon Idulgashinna Green Tea is a rare, unique and delicious example of a Sri Lanka Green Tea. It comes from the Idulgashinna Tea Estate, which finds itself in Uva Province.
This is one of the earliest gardens in the country to gain organic certification, a garden that produces both Organic Green and Ceylon Black Tea. When it comes to this one, in particular, expect nothing but the best.
There are several other noteworthy qualities to Ceylon Idulgashinna Green Tea, including its Green Tea caffeine - which amounts to around 30-mg per 8-oz cup. Then there are its Green Tea benefits.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company pack it fresh to order. This is our way of guaranteeing both quality and consistency with every cuppa brewed.

Benefits of Ceylon Indulgashina Green Tea
This remarkable, wholesome beverage contains L-theanine, an amino acid capable of reducing anxiety while promoting sleep. It functions by increasing the body’s production of Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin and dopamine.
GABA, in particular, plays a crucial role in behaviour, cognition and the body’s response to stress.
Serotonin and dopamine also have a similar effect, regulating emotions, mood and concentration. According to research published in the Journal of Nutrition & Intermediary Metabolism, L-theanine reduced anxiety in 104 participants experiencing stressful situations.
Another study shows that it can increase relaxation without causing drowsiness.
