Пересматривала фотографии со Шри-Ланки и поняла,что не выкладывала этот красивейший рассвет🌄 Тут никто никуда не спешит, все наслаждаются жизнью! Океан соседствует с живописной природой и горами! Шри-это место, куда я обязательно вернусь😍
Esto debe ser algo parecido a lo que comúnmente llaman “disfrutar de la vida” Sol, jardín y relax!! Yo soy muy de descansar en Domingo!! Feliz domingo a todos!!! ❤️❤️🔝👏🏻👌
As promised...more pictures and reviews from Sri Lanka. Sorry I kept you waiting... In Ella, Uva region, we visited Finlays’ tea estate. One of their brands is Newburgh.
Nice factory. Keeps high standards regarding quality & food safety. And has also several certifications regarding social & environmental welfare.
After a (paid) tour through the factory one of the ladies made us tea to taste. Where Sri Lanka is merely known for it’s black tea, this factory is known for it’s green tea. So, interesting area for me.
Tea I liked most was Newburgh gunpowder special, so this was the one I brought home. The pack gave brewing instructions, which I followed. 80 degrees C, 1-3 minutes (I brewed this one several times, would say first brew 2-3 minutes, later brews 60-90 seconds). At the pictures you can see:
Preparing this tea at home. Dry leaf has shades of olive green, nicely rolled to gunpowder shape. Fragrance is somewhat roasted, smokey, hints of pinewood.
The brew is yellow-coloured, somewhat cloudy. It has the same characteristic smokey smell as found in the dry leaf.
I would call it a quite ‘masculin’ tea, with this smokey and woody smell and taste. The tea has just a slight bitter and can be steeped several times. Taste profile will differ over the brews. 2nd brew gave more bitters. Later brews became sweeter, softer and with less pronounced smokey tones.
A lovely special moment tea. Eventually instead of a whiskey...more thirst quenching anyway 😉
The nice lady, preparing tea for us.
Tea factory, outside. (It was not allowed to make pictures inside)
Famous Nine arches bridge. Beautiful scenery in Ella area.
Tea lovers are everywhere. What a beauty 😍
