From P.M.David Silva & Sons

Perched over a hill overlooking an untouched rain forest, New Vithanakande Estate produces the islands most cherished low grown tea. The Guild of Fine Food were adored the unique complexity of New Vithankande and awarded it a Gold Great Taste Award in 2012. Nature heavily influences the tea produced at New Vithankande. Parochial winds sweep through the rainforest adjacent to the estate and when they arrive, they infuse the tea with forest fruit flavours.

The tea is leafy and has a glorious black sheen since the soil is abnormally high in nutrients. When infused, New Vithanakande has a complex caramel flavour and has hints of forest fruits; a tea truly blessed by nature.

My full-length review of this tea can be read here:

I really love the caramel-y notes of this tea. It’s sweet and almost creamy. Lovely notes of malt. There is also a pleasant fruit note to this that is somewhat reminiscent of sweet berries without the tartness that is commonly associated with berry. I am even picking up on some notes of raw cacao.

Robust, rich and full-flavored are not words that I generally associate with Ceylon teas but this is an exceptional Ceylon. A bold and delicious tea!
