A unique bagless teabag tea which is composed of wild tea leaves with a vanilla pod in the centre imparting a wonderful natural vanilla taste to accompany the smooth sweet molasses notes of the tea.
A tea as unique as it gets in more way than one! The leaves are collected from a former tea estate called Warnagala which was planted over 140 years ago and abandoned for 130 years. The abandoned Assamica tea bushes have since become trees which are now 40-50 feet (12-15 meters) in height.
