High Grown Uva - Caddy

Now: £5.00 Was: £10.00 sku LTSOCHGV-150 | Net weight: 150g

Loose leaf black tea.

Origin

Uva district is found on the South-Eastern slopes of Sri Lanka's central mountain range.  The warm, dry days, cool nights and steep terrain give the teas of this region an unmistakeable character.  Deep gaps between the mountain slopes funnel the drying 'kacchan' winds of the summer monsoons onto the tea plants; to protect themselves, they close up, which produces an incredible intensification of flavour in the leaves.

The Tea

To represent Uva in our collection, we have chosen one from the best quality season, which runs from July to September.  The tea characteristically displays a pungent, intense flavour which has slight - and highly prized - mentholated notes only in evidence during this time of the year.  The cooper-coloured liquor is very smooth and highly aromatic.

Approximately 50 servings.

The tea is surley excellent, but sad about that all of the 6 caddys I order have a short left time of best before 4-6 month (sept-Nov 2016). 850g of tea is hard even for a swedish tealover as me within a few months.

If you've ever felt the urge for a fancy builder's brew, this is it. Described as "intense" on the box, they aren't kidding around - this is an exceptionally strong tea so those of you who prefer more modest varieties need not apply. Twinings recommend either milk or lemon to complement the flavour - milk certainly helps a lot!

Whilst I enjoy this tea, you will get the most out of it if you drink it as part of a meal.
