Fresh, citrusy aroma, sweet juicy notes reminiscent of mandarin peel and grapefruit, this Ceylon black tea has a refreshing texture and balanced astringency. Ceylon Sonata is a classic everyday black tea from Sri Lanka. Bright and lively, this is a medium-bodied and delightfully tangy Ceylon tea.

Ceylon Sonata is a traditional black tea from the renowned Kenilworth Estate in the Kandy region of Sri Lanka. In colonial times, this island nation was known as Ceylon, and so this name is still used to describe all teas grown here.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 100°C for 3-5 minutes.

farmer
How long have you been growing tea?
Straight from school, I joined the industry in year 1995 where I have been working for the last 14 years in the existing tea plantation of Kenilworth Estate, Ginigathena under Ms. Watawala Plantations PLC.
What got you started in the Tea industry?
Since the quality of Sri Lankan tea, has a global recognition for competitive performance and reputation. I decided, this is the best opportunity to serve the country as this is the back bone of Sri Lankan economy also I experienced the environment and culture of the Tea since my child hood.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field. How many hours would that be?
Being a Hindu, I start my day by worshiping god and starting from the muster at 6.30 a.m. allocating workers to achieve days target when & where it requires. Thereafter, I spend more time in the field supervising all agricultural practices and checking the quality of the raw material [Green leaf]. Motivating a work force of approximately 500 workers, whom sometimes encounter heavy rains, blowing, cold climatic conditions take a fair amount of my time. The work involving supervision could take a minimum of 10 -12 hours a day on a 6 day week.

ingredient

fresh from origin

The tiny island of Sri Lanka is the world's third largest producer of tea, due in part to the fact that tea can be harvested year-round here. The island is blessed with perfect trade winds and striking geography, creating unique micro-climates favourable to tea production. Tea flavour is very much tied to the altitude where it grows here: low, medium or high, each with its own sought-after character. Low-grown teas are hearty, tangy and very rich in mouthfeel. High-grown teas are much lighter bodied, but are more aromatic and sweet. Mid-grown are a combination of the two, depending on exact conditions. Medium to full body with noticeable unique aromatics.
