Coming from Sri Lanka's Sinharaja Rain Forest region, Sinharaja Black is a hand-picked, hand-rolled and superior black tea made of twiggy, twisted leaves that give way to a shimmering copper golden liquor. Floral notes mixed with rice paddy hay provide a distinct base. A finale of bergamot orange and chocolate gives way to bee’s honey, making up a colorful bouquet of delicate and refined flavors.
Comprised of two leaves and a bud, Sinharaja Black is slow withered by the natural winds of the rainforest, hand rolled by artisan teamakers, oxidized, dried and packed within a day of plucking, to maintain freshness and potency. A truly amazing Ceylon black tea!

About Our Sri Lankan Tea
Formerly called Ceylon, the island of Sri Lanka has produced some of the finest tea in the world for the last 150 years. While the tea industry survived Sri Lanka’s 30-year-long civil war intact, it has also bolstered the entire country’s continued economic recovery since the war's end in 2009.
