Ceylon Mahagastotte Tea
An exquisite, light highland tea. Delicately sweet and fresh from the garden Mahagastotte (means "place of big trees") with a typical slightly tart Ceylon finish.
The Mahagastotte Estate is in the Nuwara Eliya district, the highest region of Sri Lanka at an altitude of 6,200 feet above sea level. The area is one of outstanding beauty, where the picturesque mountains carry the fragrance of cypress trees, eucalyptus and wild mint plants. Teas from this estate are sometimes known as Lover’s Leap, a reference to the story of the King’s daughter who jumped off the mountain precipice with her forbidden lover. When brewed, the tea leaves evolve into a light coppery infusion which leaves a bright, medium bodied, and refreshingly elegant taste. Mahagastotte Estate tea is a liquor that has a truly vivacious and regal personality.
