A much appreciated gift.

Got this as a gift for a family member who is a lifelong big fan of Sri Lankan tea. They were very very pleased with it and said it was a very fantastic example of Sri Lankan cha !

Delicious tea

One of my favourite teas last year. Amazing taste

Sublime is the only word!

This tea is unlike any I have ever tasted! I admit that the first time I brewed it, I steeped the leaves probably 2-3 minutes too long, and it became shockingly bitter. I almost threw it out. I decided to balance the bitterness with a hefty dose of light brown sugar plus more half & half than I put in any other tea, and it made a most unexpectedly divine milk tea. A strong brew handles milk so well! It has a very robust quality that tastes like pure malt. Literally like a malt ball without any chocolate on the outside, or like a spoonful of malt powder. A tad tangy, sharp, almost tastes fermented, as it doesn't have the "darkness" of assam. Flavors that lend themselves nicely to accompaniment with a sweet dessert. For me it's carrot cake. I drank thinking that there is no way it tastes floral, but then I finished my last drops and I was hit with an intense aftertaste of lush honeysuckle. I could feel the caffeine gently fizzing through my veins, but I simultaneously felt extremely relaxed. The effect was like matcha but more intense somehow. My goodness, I am going to be addicted to this tea! I suggest brewing for 2-3 minutes for a more delicate cup and 6-7 minutes for milk tea. Will absolutely purchase again--very soon I expect.

Henrietta's description of 'exquisite delicacy' is spot on, very special indeed and one of the few black teas I drink without sugar. There's no describing the caramel-like complexity here along with the lovely clean finish. Delicious on its own of course, but also a nice accompaniment to sweet pastries.

Tasting Notes

A uniquely sweet and delicate tea with a hint of honeysuckle. Exquisite delicacy balanced by extraordinary richness.


Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 85°C (185°F) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

48p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

Sri Lanka

The Amba Estate

The Amba Estate is located on an old, abandoned tea estate in central Sri Lanka, high above the Ravanna Falls.

Amba has been organically certified since 2009, and much of their land is fertilised by rescue cows that are themselves fed by this incredibly biodiverse terrain. These tea bushes, free of pesticides and chemical fertilisers, are then plucked by hand.
