Details

A very distinctive, large leaf that gives a satisfying, good coloured infusion, brightly flavoured with nuances of spice and fruit. The soil of Ruhuna, combined with the low elevation of the estates, causes the tea-bush to grow rapidly, producing a long, beautiful leaf that turns black on withering and is particularly suited to ‘rolling’. The teas of the Ruhuna district are defined as “low-grown” as they are cultivated at an altitude not exceeding 600m (2000ft) comprising vast subregions from coastal plains to the southern edge of Sinharaja Rain Forest. Full-flavoured black tea is a distinctively unique Ruhuna speciality. This eastern region is home to a number of nature reserves, including Ruhuna National Park, better known to Sri Lankans as Yala, whose upper reaches extend into the adjacent province of Uva. The forests of Ruhunu are home to wild elephants, leopards, bears, wild boar and many kinds of deer and giant flamingo. 1323
