Here is a beautiful tea in its dry leaf form; the silver luster of its buds offers refined contrast to the oxidized and very uniform leaves.
Its dark liquor is full and glossy, amply developing its full bodied character which is malty and sweet. The nuances of roasted peppers and prunes bring lightness and dynamism to this tea with the classic taste of Sri Lanka.
The finish is also typical with notes of wintergreen.
