Brewing instructions
Description

The first attempt of planting tea was at the Loolecondera Estate in Kandy, which was refereed to as Field No.7. These attempts to grow tea may of gone completely unnoticed if it hadn't been for a fungus in 1869 which wiped the island of coffee plants within a couple of decades.

Kandy produces medium elevation teas at 4000ft, the flavour ranges depending on altitude and whether the plantation is sheltered from the Monsoon.

The infusion is bright with a coppery tone, they are strong and intensely full bodied.

Best brewed with boiling water for 3-5 minutes.

  5. They used to do a nice Ceylon Orange Pekoe. Now, the choice is either so coarse that a 125-gram packet over-fills the caddy or so "broken" as to be almost like supermarket tea.
