Dimbula Ceylon

Dimbula Ceylon

This Ceylon tea comes from the Pettiagalla estate in the Dimbula region in the south west of Sri Lanka. It is a dark amber in colour and has the classic smooth, mildly citrus, Ceylon flavour. Produced in the "orthodox" style with large leaves (classified as Orange Pekoe size) it is a refreshing tea with a long and elegant finish.

The Dimbula region is west of the central mountains and provides mid to high altitude growing conditions which produce very rich and fragrant teas. This tea is a perfect breakfast or afternoon tea and can be taken with milk, lemon, or enjoyed on its own.
