Ceylon Silver Tip


You will immediately notice that its attractive curl is unlike any other black tea. Bountiful silver tips are generously preserved and mixed in with the short-spindle black leaves.

Abundant sunlight and rain make for outstanding growing conditions at 3,200 feet. The air is cool and crisp so the bushes flush slowly. Slower growth allows nutrients in the plants to build within the leaves making for a tastier cup. Smaller production runs, combined with superior cultivation and processing techniques, allow this single estate's teas to fetch consistently high chest prices at the Colombo auctions.
