'Ceylon Waltz' is a lively tea from the Vithanakande estate, in the Deniyaya region of Sri Lanka. In colonial times, this island nation was known as Ceylon. This name is still used to describe all teas grown here. Ceylon tea is bright and lively, medium-bodied and delightfully tangy. Ceylon Waltz's leaves are marked by long silver buds that soften and add depth. This tea offers a smooth and subtle flavor, layered with notes of red fruits, and just a hint of malt.
This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.
Ceylon is the old name of Sri Lanka. And all the tea that is grown here is still referred to as such. Most of the plantations are located in the hills, south of Kandy. The most famous tea-growing regions are all in the highlands: Dimbula, Uva and Nuwara Eliya. The high-grown teas, those cultivated above 4000 feet, tend to be superior to the lower-grown varieties. Ceylon's finer qualities - delicate flavor and sweet aroma - are typically found in its high-grown teas.
