Amba Ceylon

We recently discovered Amba Ceylon, a black tea we consider to be a little gem. Amba Ceylon comes from a group of Sri Lankan women who make very interesting hand made teas. Your purchase and enthusiasm for Amba teas helps support their livelihood. We're proud to offer it and think you'll enjoy its citrus flavor and subtle floral notes.
