From the vast plains of Assam, the Banaspaty garden offers us this tea with uniform and slightly broken leaves.
Ceylan New Vithanakande
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.

This tea was cultivated in the Rift Valley from plants of the Assamica variety (the same grown in the Nilgiris, in Southern India). It was transformed using the Orthodox Method, which is odd for a region that is accustomed to producing more industrial type teas (CTC).
This teapot was designed by the Camellia Sinensis team in partnership with a ceramics workshop in Taiwan. Made of porcelain, this glossy teapot is an ideal volume for 2 people. The fine stainless steel filter permits infusions different families of tea. Its deep basket gives the option to make a good cup of tea for one person without using the full volume of the teapot.
