This unblended single lot, grown in the low-elevation Ratnapura district, is a superior grade from New Vithanakande Estate. For this type, only the top quality tea leaves are hand-picked and carefully processed. Note the sheen on the deep-brown, delicately twisted leaves, interspersed with abundant silver and golden buds. These buds contribute exquisite flavor to a brisk and honeyed infusion, with hints of baked goods, citron, and sundried tomato, and a pleasant, lingering astringency.
