Ceylon Nuwara Eliya Tea
Ceylon Nuwara Eliya teas: beautifully floral & mellow.
Ceylon Nuwara Eliya teas are grown in the highest part of Sri Lanka’s central highlands where the harsher climatic conditions and scents of native vegetation help produce what is widely regarded as the best teas. They produce a light, mellow, golden cup that brings to mind apricots and peaches. Nuwara Eliya teas are grown at the foot of Sri Lanka’s highest mountain, Pidurutalagala, where a high plateau lies at around 600 ft altitude. Gardens flourished here from the 1870s when they were widely appreciated for the delicate character of their teas. The teas are subtley 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 Ceylon Nuwara Elia Court Lodge and high grown teas.
