Chava chai is a traditional Indian blend, best served with milk and sugar that produces a coppery liquor with a bold aroma. The blend contains black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, pepper and cloves. Perfect for a morning tea or as an afternoon delight.
Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon produces mainly black, or fully oxidized teas. The island nation of Sri Lanka is small, but she benefits from a perfect geography with an enviable microclimate that produces a complex set of temperature, moisture and wind, so the flavours and character of the teas produced vary greatly. Roleaf’s Black Tea is sourced from Nuwara Eliya, the best-known of Sri Lanka’s tea-growing districts. It is the most mountainous, and has the highest average elevation. Combined with low temperature, this region produces very exquisite teas.
Some of our black teas are from the remote Uva district which is exposed to the winds of both northeast and southwest monsoons. The climate produces tea with a special, distinct character and exotically aromatic flavour. The mellow, smooth taste of Uva tea is easily distinguished.
Most black tea from Sri Lanka is orthodox tea, meaning it was processed by hand. Brisk and bright, it is rich with a unique crisp citrus aroma and goodness uniquely formed by the varying terroir of Sri Lanka’s tea-growing regions.
Sri Lanka is the only place in the world with such a unique terroir of a fertile island to experience two monsoons which make it the country of choice to grow superior and exotic spices, particularly the native cinnamon. Roleaf Chava Chai is blended with such exquisite Sri Lankan spices – cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, pepper and cloves.
