Flurry of Blows - Sri Lankan Ceylon Black
Vithankande Estate — Ratnapura, Sri Lanka

This tea hits like a martial artist after decades of training leading up to one moment, one fight, punches slamming into you one after another with precise, pin-point accuracy inside of one second, one sip. Vithankande Estate hooks us up with this slammin' black tea with mildly astringent flavors, a smooth profile, and a hearty, heavy body. Looking for your Ceylon Black? This is the one for you!
