My favorite tea

I got this at first as part of a variety pack and bought Kandy on it's own because it is now one of my favorite teas.

Smooth and flavorful

It is rare for me to find tea that is as good as this one. I tend to drink the same 2-3 teas and primarily British Brunch and Earl Grey. However I have already reordered this one because it is so smooth and tasty.

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.

Ceylon Nuwara Eliya

Sri Lankan Black Tea

A well known, yet somewhat under-appreciated, tea from the area situated between Uva and Dimbula. Grown and processed at elevations above 1500 meters, Nuwara Eliyas have a very light color and body similar to some first flush Darjeelings. While their body and cup color are light, the flavors can be intense and floral, which add brightness and character to blends.

Ceylon Uva

Sri Lankan Black Tea

Situated 1100 meters above sea level on the island of Sri Lanka, the Uva region produces teas of distinctly different character from their Ceylonese siblings. Uvas are astringent, intensely floral and slightly sharp in flavor with a golden cup color. They add “bite” and freshness to blends.

Uva Province

Uva Province is located in the soutestern part of Sri Lanka and is the second least populated portion of the island. It makes up for this with an abundance of exceptional tea gardens and wonderfule scenic overviews, like Lipton's Seat, where one can have a fresh cup of tea from the Dambethenna Estate and a front row seat to harvesting in the surrounding tea fields. We buy our teas during the peak harvest moths of June through September.
