Savor the pleasant and rich flavor of mangoes blended with our astringent Ceylon tea and think good thoughts. We only use teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka – Nuwara Rya, Dimbuia and Uva Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This dual peak period allows us to buy the best for our flavoured tea several times a year. These high-grown districts produce teas that have classic ‘Ceylon’ tea character, noted by floral bouquet and flavour notes, touches of astringency and bright coppery color. Perfect as the base of our flavored teas. We have tested teas from various other origins around the world as a base for our flavored teas, but none made the grade. Flavouring oils, not artificial crystals, give the tea drinker high-quality tea that tastes great.
