For The World's Greatest Teas

Ceylon Nuwara Eliya teas

Ceylon Nuwara Eliya tea: beautifully floral & mellow.
Ceylon Nuwara Eliya tea is from the plateau at the highest part of Sri Lanka’s central highlands, around 6,000 ft., where the harsher climatic conditions and thinner soils put the tea bush under more stress to grow. The scents of native vegetation also help produce what is widely regarded as the best teas. Much lower rainfall here results in more concentrated flavour in the leaf.
These black teas have a citrusy aroma and produce a light, mellow, golden cup that brings to mind apricots and peaches. Nuwara Eliya teas are grown beneath Sri Lanka’s highest mountain, Pidurutalagala, (Mount Pedro). Gardens flourished here from the 1870s when they were widely appreciated for the delicate character of their teas.
The teas are subtly golden in colour and are some of the world’s most delightful. They are picked in the cooler, drier months of January to March. See our large leaf OP grade Court Lodge Ceylon Nuwara Eliya black tea and Lovers’ Leap.
