JOURNEY TO ECOLOGICAL TEA ESTATE IN MIDDLE COUNTRY - NUWARA ELIYA
Nuwara Eliya is located in Sri Lanka (Ceylon) cultivating finest tea in the world
Nuwara Eliya, nicknamed the “Little England” of Sri Lanka for its chilly climate and colonial-style bungalows, is situated at an elevation of 1,868 m in the misty hills of central Sri Lanka. Nuwara Eliya’s European-style environment is a result of the city once being a retreat for colonial planters and high-society. Its location has bestowed Nuwara Eliya with textbook conditions for hillside Ceylon tea plantations!
As Nuwara Eliya is unique, so is its tea. Recognized by tea connoisseurs, it has been said that Nuwaraeliya, at 6,240 feet above sea level, is to Ceylon tea what Champagne is to French wine. Brewed light makes for a very smooth cup of tea that can also be iced for a refreshing difference.
