Ceylon Dimbula Silver Tip tea: Vithanakande
Ceylon Dimbula Silver Tip tea has a beautifully fine, twisted and very tippy leaf. Picked when the leaf is in its downy youth. Medium bodied, it is reddish gold in appearance with a deeply fruity, floral cup and reassuringly rounded nose. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for three minutes. Drink without milk.
“I love the sweet aroma. I really enjoy the whole experience, first the sweet smell then the refreshing taste is so satisfying. My only problem is if I have a sweet biscuit it ruins my senses.”
“A truly special experience. This has to be one of the finest Ceylon gardens with a distinctive taste which makes it my tea of choice as a change up from my usual Pettiagalla.”
“Very good Ceylon tea. A good bright robust Ceylon tea, one of the best Ceylon’s I have tasted. Very refreshing.”
“REFRESHING, GOOD FLAVOUR, REFRESHING”
“Very good indeed. Slightly fruity on the nose & not overly malty aftertaste ; this is a very elegant tea indeed. Very refreshing with superb balance throughout. (Deserves to be made with decent water) One of the finest Ceylon teas I have tasted & worth the price. You’ll struggle to go back to your £5-£7 bags.”

The benefits of loose leaf tea
This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse.
