A rare tea that ranks as an equivalent of a fine Islay Malt Whisky.

  • Tasting Note & Distintive Features

    A powerful tea from our Rilhena Estate in the Ratnapura region, exhibiting twisted, dark brown leaf. When infused the tea evolves into a chocolate coloured infusion with a piquant and lightly smoky aroma. The amber liquor that is produced offers a robust and very unusual tea; smoked gently over the embers of Cinnamon wood for three days after fermentation, the tea has a pleasing smoky character with a hint of spicy, sweetness that is the result of the use of Ceylon Cinnamon in smoking the tea. A rare tea that ranks as an equivalent of a fine Islay Malt Whisky.
