Grand Cru No. 120
Tea of Ceylon
The seasons in Ceylon, known today as Sri Lanka, are heavily influenced by the monsoon. During the dry monsoon, or so-called cold season, plantation workers harvest the finest varieties of what experts continue to refer to as Ceylon tea. The best teas grow in the Uva district at heights of up to 1,600 metres. They stand out for their highly aromatic, slightly bitter flavour. A meticulously selected tea speciality for the most demanding of palates.
The Uva district is one of the best cultivation areas in Sri Lanka. The varieties of Ceylon tea that grow here are strong, tangy and particularly aromatic.
Tea quality in its purest form: Grand Cru means ‘great growth’.

Tea is a sensitive natural product. It should therefore be kept in a cool, dry place away from strong-smelling items. Tea caddies with a good seal are ideal for storage and make a perfect small gift for tea lovers.
