"A rare tea that ranks as an equivalent of a fine Islay Malt Whisky"
A powerful tea from our Rilhena Estate in the Ratnapura region, exhibiting twisted, dark brown leaf. When infused the tea evolves into a chocolate-coloured infusion with a piquant and lightly smoky aroma. The amber liquor that is produced offers a robust and very unusual tea; smoked gently over the embers of Cinnamon wood for three days after fermentation, the tea has a pleasing smoky character with a hint of spicy, sweetness that is the result of the use of Ceylon Cinnamon in smoking the tea. A rare tea that ranks as an equivalent of a fine Islay Malt Whisky.
About the Origin
Rilhena Estate, Ceylon
Rilhena Estate is situated near Pelmadulla town in the Sabaragamuwa Province, an area enriched with gem stones. The estate is also in close proximity to the historic Ganegam Buddhist Temple which was purportedly constructed by King Walahamba in the 14th century. The distinct feature of this temple is the large statue of Lord Buddha in a standing position, which is an uncommon pose for statues of the Buddha found in Sri Lanka. This temple is an important place of worship for Buddhists.
