A blend of teas from the small Organic Farmers Association (SOFA). Decaffeinated using CO2 process.
The infusion is velvety and slightly malty reminiscent of dark chocolate.
SOFA – the Small Organic Farmers’ Association – is an organisation of small-scale farmers who grow organic certified tea, coffee, spices and vegetable crops for the market and for home consumption. The original members are located near the town of Gampola, a 40-minute drive from Kandy. Their smallholdings are mostly on land which was formerly a state-run tea plantation, producing full bodied strong tea, known as mid-grown tea, at altitudes of 2,000 to 4,000 feet. Their production of Fairtrade tea and spices is purchased and marketed by Bio Foods (PVT) Ltd.
Tip: The decaf processing takes away some of the strength therefore we recommend to use 2 teaspoons of tea (per 200ml cup) instead of one. Brew 4- 5 min, enjoy with a dash of milk!
