Fresh From Origin
The tiny island of Sri Lanka is the world's third-largest producer of tea, due in part to the fact that tea can be harvested year-round here. The island is blessed with perfect trade winds and striking geography, creating unique micro-climates favorable to tea production. The tea flavor is very much tied to the altitude where it grows here: low, medium or high, each with its own sought-after character. Low-grown teas are hearty, tangy and very rich in mouthfeel. High-grown teas are much lighter bodied but are more aromatic and sweet. Mid-grown is a combination of the two, depending on the exact conditions. Medium to full body with noticeable unique aromatics.
