Uva Valley - The remotely situated Uva Valley which lies 600m above sea level, is often subjected to seasonal changes. When monsoonal winds of both northeast and southwest funnel through the valleys of the Ohiya and Idalgashenna regions, the tea bushes go through a state of combined stress, which results in flushes with various volatile compounds. This creates a distinctive character and an intensely floral Linalool flavor in the tea. Once sipped, the sharp taste of Uva tea is easy to distinguish. Traces of natural mint flavor and the golden hue are some of the tea characteristics unique to the microclimatic conditions in Uva. Sir Thomas Lipton, the great Victorian magnate, first persuaded Americans to take up the tea-drinking habit with the tea that was grown and manufactured in his Uva tea estate. These signature black tea leaves are chosen by our expert master tasters to offer a unique limited edition artisanal tea, which is tailor-made to enjoy the refined taste of Uva Seasonal by tea lovers across the globe.
