This very special Ceylon tea from the distinguished tea estate Vithanakande is renowned for the purity of flavour as it is only cultivated in the rarest of clear air environments. A Scotsman named James Taylor first planted 19 acres of tea bushes in Ceylon (as Sri Lanka was known then) back in 1867 and since then Ceylon tea is known and honoured around the world for its fine and pure teas. Our Special Ceylon is a wonderful example of this tea experience.

The fine and wiry whole leaf has an abundance of flickering gold tips that infuse to a warm, russet cup colour with a rich honey fragrance.


Ingredients & Nutritional Information


Ceylon Black Tea










Use 1 heaped teaspoon per cup. Freshly drawn water (which has not been over-boiled) will bring out the finest flavours of our teas. Just boiled water is the ideal temperature for Black, Aromatic, Oolong and Infusion or Fruit & Herbal blends.


Use water at just below boiling point for Green, White and Yellow teas.


Brewing - All teas need time to properly infuse, releasing their true flavours.




Black and Aromatic teas are best brewed for 3-5 mins, but no longer. Oolong teas will take no less than 2 mins but the leaves can be re-infused several times. Green and White teass are best brewed for 1-3 mins. Infusion or Fruit & Herbal blends are best brewed for at least 4 mins.




Preservation - Once opened, always keep your loose tea in an airtight caddy or container and enjoy within the Best Before Date.
