Ceylon - Uva

The world-famous Uva teas owe their distinct character to the unique topographical position of this district. During late summer, extreme drying winds, called the "Cachan" by Sri Lankans, cause the tea bush leaves to close tightly, and the lowered moisture content of these closed leaves increases the balance of flavor. Teas produced during this season are highly prized for their quality.
