This seasonal tea from the Aislaby Tea Estate in Sri Lanka’s Uva district takes black tea to another level! Hot days, cold nights and strong winds combine to stress the bush and build flavour, while the oxidation process is minimised to result in a black tea with a number of green tea characteristics -  it's deeply aromatic with complex flavours, including intriguing notes of wintergreen, reminiscent of antiseptic cream. You have to try this!
