"Gentle yet richly aromatic tea, reminiscent of Turkish Delight with a touch of spice"


Tasting Note

The beautifully even leaf develops a mahogany coloured liquor, with an unusually gentle yet rich aroma and flavour, reminiscent of Turkish Delight with a touch of spice. The rose maintains seductive balance with a mellow Dombagastalawa Estate Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe, with a finish that is luxurious and tinged with a throat warming Ginger flavour. The soft embrace of rose produces an indulgent and aromatic tea that is imbued with romance and adventure.

 

About the Origin

Doombagastalawa Estate, Ceylon

Dombagastalawa Estate was established in the late 18th Century and it is located in the Mid Country Nawalapitiya District, which offers extraordinary scenic beauty as well as outstanding teas. Dombagastalawa Estate tea is also analogous to a Syrah (a typed of dark-skinned grape) grown in warm but not hot climate areas, on steeper hilltops facing the sun. When infused, the tea evolves into a dark, coppery brown infusion with a biscuity taste. Often compared to Assam tea because of its somewhat intense flavour, it stands out on its own because of its medium bodied, deliciously dry and generous qualities. If steeped for approximately five minutes or longer, one will get to indulge in a tea that is not bitter and also very aromatic.
