About the tea...

Amba's lemongrass was:

  • plucked in the early morning, by hand,
  • sorted, by hand,
  • was dried via both sunlight and small dryer until the perfect moisture level was reached,
  • and produced a small batch resulting in 64 kg of tea (approx. 141 pounds). 

**When steeped, the liquor color will be a golden hue. Liquor flavors include lemondrops and a hint of honey.  

About Amba Estate: 

  • Amba is a small, organic farm located in the hills about 1000m above Ravanna Ella Waterfalls (Uva District). 
  • The estate grows tea, coffee, spices, herbs, fruits, and vegetables. 
  • Amba is one of the only tea estates in Sri Lanka making small scale, artisanal tea. 
  • Amba cross trains their employees (very rare) to enable fulfillment of multiple roles.
  • Amba offers a profit sharing program with their employees with 1% going into a charity fund, and the other 9% being split amongst the workers. This is almost unheard of in this part of the world!
