Description

 Details: Located on the eastern slopes of Sri Lanka, the Uva section makes tea that gets your attention, because they are brisk. They are one of the few known for having wintergreen flavors. This comes from methyl salicylate that exists within the plant's self-defense system.
 Dry Leaves: Dark brown leaves cut into small pieces.
 Liquor: Red brown.
 Aroma: A good tea from Uva has the wintergreen aromas found in mints. This happens because of the plant cultivar and winds that dry the plant, concentrating the aromas.
 Flavors: It is a blend of honey and citrus, with a strong note of wintergreen.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied. This tea welcomes milk and is quite brisk, filling your mouth with tingles.
 Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 212ยบ
