Black Tea

Ceylon & Rose

Rich, Fragrant, Enchanting Ruhuna, Sri Lanka
A shimmering and malty black tea with light notes of fruit, lifted by a sweet and fragrant rose garden finish. This masterfully blended combination makes for a calming, enchanting infusion.

Ceylon & Rose

In the south of Sri Lanka, Ruhuna is a terroir known for its tropical climate, fertile soil and ability to produce tea with a great depth of character, all year round. To ensure a deeply fragrant infusion, we selected a refined blend of low-grown, medium-bodied Ceylon tea and introduced delicate whole rosebuds. These lighten the texture of the tea and produce naturally superb floral notes, resulting in an enchanting infusion with a sublime finish.

    Beautiful tea, perfect couple

    The black tea in combination with the rose buds is a perfect match. Still a soft taste in the first cup/brew, the second or third cup really show the perfect coupling of the ingredients. The black tea itself is much less dominating and black than other, simpler black teas. This is very useful to not dominate over the rosebuds. Seeing them unfold in the tea pot is also beautiful.
