Ran Watte Region
The Ran Watte region is Nuwara Eliya, where many acres of tea gardens with rich green foliage stretch across the hills. Nuwara Eliya means "city of lights" or "city of eternal spring." It has been said that "Nuwara Eliya is to Ceylon Tea what Champagne is to French wine." The air is crisp and fresh there, 1890 metres above sea level, a tranquil respite from the rush and bustle of sweltering Colombo. Because of this, we say that Ran Watte originates from the roof of paradise, in the style of exquisite Champagne, with rivulets of flavour that linger and revitalise.
Best Ran Watte tasting
To truly savour the delicate flavour of Ran Watte tea, it's best to enjoy it straight, without any added milk or sugar. For those who prefer a touch of sweetness, a drizzle of honey or a squeeze of fresh lemon can enhance the tea's natural taste. Pairing Ran Watte with light snacks like sandwiches or babaganoush is a great way to appreciate the subtle flavours of the tea, and it also goes well with light cakes or scones. For an indulgent treat, try pairing Ran Watte with Lindt 65% Cocoa Milk Chocolate, which complements the tea's smooth taste and offers a delicious contrast of flavours.
Store the tea in its steel box, and keep in a cool, dark place. It is important, when storing, to keep it away from sources of heat.
If storing in the refrigerator or freezer, pack in small, completely airtight packets or jars. Before use, wait for it to reach room temperature, in order to prevent any condensation. Each defrosted packet should be used within a week after opening.
