This single estate tea represents over 120 years and five generations of family tradition from a tea plantation managed by Francis Van Reyk, the great-great-grandfather of the family owners of Capital Teas. In the 1890’s, Van Reyk, managed the well-known Diyagama Estate in the Dimbula region of Ceylon (present day Sri Lanka). Unaware to him then, would be the five-generations of family tradition in tea that he would begin which is alive and well today on multiple continents.
Capital Teas proudly offers this high quality, BOP Ceylon tea which is directly imported from the very tea estate managed by Van Reyk in the 19th century. Bold and sophisticated, you will find this black tea to be pleasant on its own or with a touch of milk.
