As a homage to the Sinharaja Rainforest (UNESCO World Heritage Site) located above the Lumbini Valley, Lumbini Sinharaja Wiry Tips, the most awarded tea in the world define the pinnacle of Ceylon Tea. This rare tea is made from the freshest and purest Lumbini Valley Leaf that is infused with the rich elements of the glorious Sinharaja Forest, high above on the mountain valley. An aroma full of forest notes and a palate of velvet smoothness makes for a tea that is truly deserving of the global acclaim it has accumulated over the years. Forest flowers and notes of caramel and honey make up a colorful bouquet of flavor, paired up with the goodness of health-boosting antioxidants and essential minerals, all gradually released across multiple infusions. Produced in limited quantity by the 'Dalu' Master-Craftsmen, Wiry Tips uses the bud and unopened leaf. If there is ever a tea that you must try for its sheer value in aesthetics and purity... This is it.
