OUR WESTERN HIGH GROWN TEA
Delicate and complex flavour profile – The higher altitudes and cooler temperatures slow down the growth of tea leaves, resulting in a longer maturation period. This extended growth period allows the tea leaves to develop unique flavours, often described as bright, brisk, and floral, with hints of citrus, honey, and delicate variations.
Bright Liquor and Aroma – When brewed, Ceylon Western High Grown Tea produces a bright and vibrant liquor that is visually appealing. The liquor showcases a beautiful range of amber, golden, or light copper hues. The aroma is often described as fragrant and uplifting, with floral notes that add to the sensory experience.
High Antioxidant Content – Ceylon Western High Grown Tea is rich in antioxidants. These natural compounds are known for their potential health benefits, such as boosting the immune system, promoting heart health, and supporting overall well-being.
Versatility- Ceylon Western High Grown Tea is versatile and suitable for various brewing methods. It can be enjoyed as a hot tea, iced tea, or incorporated into tea blends. The tea leaves are also often used in flavoured teas, infusions, and specialty tea products.
Quality and Consistency- The tea gardens in the western high grown regions adhere to strict quality control standards, ensuring consistency in flavour, aroma, and appearance from batch to batch.
