Fresh, citrusy aroma, sweet juicy notes reminiscent of mandarin peel and grapefruit, this superior grade Ceylon black tea has a refreshing texture and balanced astringency. Our Ceylon Sonata is a classic everyday black tea from the renowned Kenilworth Estate in the Kandy region of Sri Lanka. Bright and lively, this is a medium-bodied and delightfully tangy Ceylon tea.

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 first tea plant was smuggled into Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon) in 1824. While it was not intended for commercial uses at the time, it wasn't long before more plants arrived, and by 1867, the first tea plantation was founded by Scotsman James Taylor. By the 1880s, following a severe blight in the 1870s, nearly all coffee plantations had converted to tea. Now, Sri Lanka is one of the world's largest producers of tea, with six main growing regions across several elevations and growing conditions.
