BLACK • BRIGHT • AROMATIC

The first tea plants in Sri Lanka were brought from India in the 1840s and 50s by Scotsman James Taylor. When coffee blight wiped out the Sri Lankan coffee industry in the 1870s, coffee planters and men like Sir Thomas Lipton began buying up old coffee farms to plant tea instead.

The warm, tropical climate of Sri Lanka means tea production happens year-round. These teas are known for their rich, red color, smooth, full body, and spicy, tangy flavors.

    I also bought it for my wife…..and she likes it. I will however make a cup of tea for myself every great once in a while…..and I did. I think I liked it more than her. So consider me happy with my purchase.

    Loved by a Tea Snob

    Ric (verified owner)

    My wife is a self confessed tea snob. She’s spent a decent amount of time in Britain and only drinks the best. She was taken by the deep flavor of this pure black tea. Especially at the price it’s a steal.
