The most formidable tea that the region has ever produced.
An even Broken Orange Pekoe leaf from an estate that is known for its bright and bold Talawakelle teas. The dark brown leaf evolving into a bright coppery infusion confirms the fine heritage of this tea. The regal red liquor offers the brisk, bright and full bodied tea that the Dimbula Valley is famous for. Medium bodied with intensity, a formidable tea that is equal to the finest teas that this picturesque region has ever produced.
