High Grown Uva 125g Loose Leaf Tea
Loose Leaf Black Tea
Uva district is found on the South-Eastern slopes of Sri Lanka's central mountain range. The warm, dry days, cool nights and steep terrain give the teas of this region an unmistakable character. Deep gaps between the mountain slopes funnel the drying 'kacchan' winds of the summer monsoons onto the tea plants; to protect themselves, they closed up, which produces an incredible intensification of flavour in the leaves.
To represent Uva in our collection, we have chosen one from the best quality season, which runs from July to September. The tea characteristically displays a pungent, intense flavour which has slight - and highly prized - mentholated notes only in evidence during this time of year. The copper-coloured liquor is very smooth and highly aromatic.
