Overlooking a tropical rainforest on the island of Sri Lanka (which is referred to by its colonial name “Ceylon” in tea circles), the New Vithanakande tea factory has earned an “A” rating by the Ethical Tea Partnership of the UK for its collaboration with small tea holders and village farmers in the lowlands.
Using an extremely fine sorting process to seek out the highest quality leaf, this “extra special” grade boasts a beautiful appearance with abundant golden tips. This bright, copper-colored cup has a full-bodied mouthfeel, a lively, caramelized-honey fragrance and deep, malty and complex notes of dry dark chocolate, chestnuts, wood, spice and a hint of ripe fruit.
