Uda Pussellawa Black Tea

Famous for its rare wildlife and exotic plant species, the Uda Pussellawa region is almost entirely dedicated to tea cultivation. The climate is mostly wet and misty due to the northeast monsoon system, which brings rain between the months of November and January. Elevations range from 950-1,600 meters, lower than Nuwara Eliya. Teas from this region tend to be darker in the cup, with medium body and a subtle character.
