Kandula Tea Company

On a recent trip to Marshalls, I found some great tea items, including an afternoon tea book and a box of Kandula tea.  I’m always happy to discover a brand of tea that I haven’t tried.

This English Breakfast blend is a nice change from my usual morning cuppa.  The tea is grown and cultivated in Sri Lanka and is a blend of FBOP (flowery broken orange pekoe).  It is a deliciously brisk black tea.DSCF0619

It was nice to read that this company is committed to fair treatment for the plantation workers and their families.  The Kandula Tea Company also supports Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage.

Their box design is great.  “An elephant with its trunk raised in the air is meant to be a symbol of good fortune…” They have used a distinctive blue and white pattern on the top and bottom of the box.

There are several blends that I’d love to try, including the Ebony Chai.  I think this is the first spiced chai I’ve seen that contains rose petals along with the more usual ingredients.

Ayubowan

Saying “Ayubowan” is the “Sri Lankan” way of greeting a person.
It is like saying “Hello”, but in addition, “Ayubowan” has a much wider meaning, that is wishing “May you live longer and be healthy”.

There are many wonderful photos, recipes and lots of health information on the company website and blogEnjoy!
