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 handmade teas. Your purchase and enthusiasm for Amba teas help support their livelihood. We're proud to offer it, and we think you'll enjoy its citrus flavor and subtle floral notes.


Black tea, tea flowers.

 Details: Amba Estate is a small organic farm run by Beverly Wainwright. She works with several local women to pluck and make hand-rolled artisanal tea.
 Dry Leaves: Dark leaves with tea flowers scattered throughout. Since it is hand-rolled, the leaves are not as tightly twisted as with most other teas.
 Liquor: A medium-brown liquor with orange hues.
 Aroma: There are notes of honey, citrus, and dried fruit, with hints of mango and marzipan.
 Flavors: The citrus flavors combine with some sweetness, like liquorice and honey. There are some subtle floral notes.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Light-bodied, due to its big leaves.
 Brewing Time: 4 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 212¬ļ
