Ingredients - singe estate, organically grown black tea
A Picker's Pocket specialty.
We don’t think there is anyone who would know how to brew tea better than the pluckers who harvest our fresh tea leaves daily.
This black tea is made the same way that estate workers make tea at home.
With limited resources to process the tea, the leaves are pounded in a stone ‘Vangedi’ in village homes by the pluckers themselves before oxidising and drying.
It’s illegal to make this tea on the big estates since it means the workers must be ‘pocketing’ the leaves! Thieves’ Tea is grown at our organic garden in the hills above Ravana Waterfall in Sri Lanka’s cooler mountain region, the Uva Province.
The result is one of our favourite loose leaf teas that’s full of flavour and easy to drink with or without milk.
