Details: Mike visited this lovely estate that is located high above the small town of Nuwara Eliya. This area is amongst the highest areas to grow teas, and the weather is constantly changing. Sometimes sunny, but often cloudy or rainy. This makes for the beautiful and lush tea plants. Also it does not have as distinct a growing season as the areas to the west (Dimbula) or the east (Uva.) So the teas from this area have a flavor of their own: light citrus notes.
