Classic long-leaf style leaf from Sri Lanka, New Vithanakande estate - a new lot.  A must try. One of our personal recommendations. Ceylon black teas are often considered the ideal 5 o'clock tea.  Very good for those who enjoy a brisk, flavorful cup. In strength - not as strong as an Assam or Irish Breakfast. Good with milk or on its own.

Our favorite black tea for years

We have been drinking New Vith every day since discovering it at the SilverTips tea room in Tarrytown 20(?) years ago. We were VERY sorry to see the shop close after enjoying it for so long, but remain glad that we still have a local mail-order source for our favorite Ceylon brew.

20 years ago sounds about right! Happy to still be of service to you. New Vithanakande remains a customer favorite along with Kenilworth, Ceylon.

Lovely simple taste

This is an uncomplicated ceylon that is great for an afternoon tea. Due to it's long leaves, be sure to use an extra scoop of it when brewing - or go by weight to get the right amount, otherwise it will be too weak.

Quite right - a very useful tip or you will miss the full character of the tea.
