This tea is as exquisite as a fine Islay Malt Whisky, hailing from the Rilhena Estate in Ratnapura. This rare brew, obtained from a unique smoking process over cinnamon wood, results in a smoky, subtly sweet amber liquor.

Ceylon Souchong

Imagine a tea so exceptional, it's like the tea world's answer to a luxurious Islay Malt Whisky. Crafted with love at our Rilhena Estate in the picturesque Ratnapura region, this brew is truly a masterpiece. The leaves, dark and twisted, bloom into a chocolate-hued infusion that whispers of mystery with its lightly smoky and richly aromatic essence.

Rilhena Estate

Rilhena Estate is right next to the small town of Pelmadulla in the Sabaragamuwa Province, known for its precious gemstones. Close by is the historic Ganegam Buddhist Temple, thought to have been built by King Walahamba in the 14th century. What's special about this temple is its big statue of the Buddha standing up, which is pretty rare to see in Sri Lanka. This temple is a very important place for Buddhists to go and see.

Storage advice

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.
