A higher than usual grade of Orange Pekoe, consisting of very well rolled, wiry leaves. An extraordinary quality and unique taste from an award winning estate.


What it is?
A higher than usual grade of Orange Pekoe, consisting of very well rolled, wiry leaves. An extraordinary quality and unique taste from an award-winning estate.

Why we love it
This is a gentle, full of flavour, exquisite black tea, perfect anytime of the day. Neat black and silver leaves produce a dark amber liquor. It has a smooth deep character with stony and malty notes of fruits and molasses.

Where it’s from
Sri Lanka, New Vithanakande tea factory. Ratnapura has a lower elevation, and its geography is a transition between hills and plains.  Worth a trip one day?  Pick your own tea maybe? The highest estates share in the microclimatic conditions produced by the rainforests, cloud forests and high, grassy plains endemic to this region. As a result, they produce tea of a somewhat different character to that grown at lower elevations in the district. Some of these estates receive the highest rainfall of any in the plantation districts.

How our drink hits the senses
Almost chocolaty, strong and intense

The taste journey
The tea is leafy and has a glorious black and copper sheen since the soil is abnormally high in nutrients. When infused, New Vithanakande has a complex caramel flavour and has hints of forest fruits; a tea truly blessed by nature.

Best enjoyed;
1tsp // 100°C // 2-3 mins
