Nuwara Eliya

Posted in Uncategorized by jagajared on June 23, 2010

A good friend of mine is right now in Nuwara Eliya, a tea growing region of Sri Lanka (commonly referred to as Ceylon in the tea world). He just completed agreements with a number of tea gardens and we are going to partner to bring back sickeningly awesome quality tea from Nuwara Eliya, and uber flavourful fair trade and organic Uva (another tea growing region in Sri Lanka) teas.

My friend’ss father is native to Sri Lanka and the two of them have been visiting family. They brought two empty suitcases and will be bringing back the tea on their return to Victoria.

Samples have been sent. I am anxiously awaiting full leaf Nuwara Eliya, silver needles from Adam’s Peak, and a very small, small amount of golden needles for Miyu and I to assess. Some magic is in the works right now, I can feel it.

Miyu and my move to include a limited offering loose tea line in our offerings was a very exciting and remains a very rewarding twist to our maccha company. Brenden Waye (the “tea guy” of www.theteaguy.com ) once aptly stated that what we have is a maccha bar with loose teas also available. However, if we are going to offer loose teas, I still want them to be to the same psychotically unattainable standards we pride ourselves on. lol.

DHL should be by any minute with a very exciting present…
