Ceylon Dimbula

BLACK TEA

18 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

Very smooth, no bite

I love stronger teas that have a beautiful reddish color. This tea fits that. Full-bodied but smooth with little tannic bite. I drink a cup every mid-morning and am thoroughly enjoying it. I bought this particular tea because of a British group I am in online and people praised Ceylon Dimbula tea. I had never heard of Dimbula so when I saw it here I was curious. I truly love it.

Lovely mild tea.

The Ceylon Dimbula has a very nice mild flavor. It has a good caffeine kick but not too jolting. I enjoy it with a bit of milk and agave syrup. I recommend you give it a try.

Meh

Not great. Not terrible. It isn’t a bad tea, but it isn’t what I hoped it would be. I’m trying to match the flavor of a packaged Japanese iced tea beverage made by Kirin (Gogo no Kocha Straight Tea), which lists Ceylon Dimbula as an ingredient.

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.
