We came across this little gem late last year. It is from a group of Sri Lankan women that work with a former British aid worker to make very interesting hand made teas. So, this is sort of “direct aid”.
What struck us as interesting about this tea is the use of dried tea flowers as part of the final product: a rarity in the tea world. The big tea leaves make for a light and slightly sweet brew. Also there are floral notes from the tea flowers. It is a pleasure to drink this tea, and to know that we are helping a tiny tea farm and its 6 women.
