Imperial Ceylon

A beautiful single estate black tea from Sri Lanka. This excellent example of high-grade Ceylon has a delicious, almost fruity, aroma and clean, smooth aromatic flavour with a hint of earthiness. Immensely drinkable!

Picked by hand on the Dickwella estate in Matara, South Sri Lanka; this coastal tea is rolled into long, thin slightly curled leaves with plenty of bud and tip and has a mild, smooth character which is both aromatic and clean. 

This wonderful infusion delights the senses with a pronounced aromatic and somewhat fruity aroma and copper-brown liquor. It is wonderfully refined and elegant and works well when taken with milk.

Ceylon teas are famously popular as Iced Teas because they maintain their clarity when chilled. Try brewing this tea cold or over ice straight up or with honey, lemon & fresh mint.

Imperial Ceylon is also included in the following signature gift collections:
