Machine-picked leaves include older leaves plus bits of twig; handpicked leaves include only two young tip leaves plus the bud. Our tea is grown at the 5000-foot level in the Dimbulla region of Sri Lanka (formerly called Ceylon). It brews to a rich golden color with a mellow taste.
A tin of this tea is an excellent gift for any tea lover. It comes sealed in a Victorian-style tin that also serves as an attractive caddy. 200g/7oz.
