From Somage Fine Foods

Located in the region of Ruhuna in Sri Lanka, Lumbini Estate is one of the country’s most acclaimed tea estates having won the rare 3 Star quality rating issued by the Sri Lanka Tea Board and being voted the best tea factory in Sri Lanka by the Specialty Tea Institute (STI) of America. Our Lumbini PBOPF EX SP black tea received a gold medal for best Ceylon by the STI and recorded the highest price ever for a Ceylon at the Colombo Tea auctions. The long slender uniform leaves and high tip content create a strong tea with a bright coppery infusion with a deep malty complexity and spicy sweetness.

A tea that had already experienced considerable acclaim internationally, I worked with the manager of Lumbini tea factory Chaminda Jayawardana to reduce the level of oxidisation of this tea for the Australian market. It is still a strong tea with loads of character, moderate enough to be enjoyed black but with a strength of flavour that easily stands up to milk.
