Ceylon Dimbula


7 reviews

Ceylon Dimbula has a reddish amber color in the cup, with a medium to full body, slightly fruity flavor with mineral notes. Often used in Earl Grey and other blends, the best pure Dimbulas like this one are magnificent on their own.

Tasting Notes:

Malt, caramel, raisin

Ok but not great

I have tried a lot of different tea companies teas from Sri-Lanka. Dimbula produces teas that are mellow, copper color with a bright, brisk and refreshing taste. This tea taste just average much like a lower grown tea. I do not consider it a good buy for the price. Maybe mine was just old not sure. I tried it at different brew times but didn't notice much flavor change.

Real tea & lots of taste

This tea has so much flavor that it puts to shame anything else from the grocery store's big brands. It has a complexity that I love & can drink all day long.

Blend Numerology

Stands for flavor as smooth as the ride of the '64 Impala.


For best flavor, bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Steep 1 rounded tsp (3g) loose leaf for five minutes while dreaming of the hills of Sri Lanka.

Ceylon Dimbula

Sri Lankan Black Tea

The Dimbula region is directly opposite the Uva region in Sri Lanka. Dimbulas are often called “Westerns” in the tea trade. They have a reddish amber color in the cup, with a medium to full body, slightly fruity flavor and mineral notes. Ceylon Dimbulas are often used in medium bodied blends, Earl Grey formulas and other flavored teas. The best Dimbula teas are produced from December to February.

Central Province

The Central Province, true to its name, is located in the heart of Sri Lanka. It is said that in its capital city of Kandy, the tooth of the Buddha resides in a temple, which alone makes this place worth visiting. Here at Smith, just as holy, are the many breathtaking high elevation tea gardens that make a significant contribution to the total output of high grade Sri Lankan teas, which we look to buy between the months of December to February.
