WATTE BOUTIQUE TEA

The Dilmah WATTE Selection represents the unique qualities of selected tea gardens in the four primary Ceylon Tea Growing regions: Ran Watte (Peak Elevation), Uda Watte (High Elevation), Meda Watte (Mid Elevation) and Yata Watte (Low Elevation). The unique aspects of a place – climate, soil and topography – influences and shapes the tea made there and gives iit a specific personality, much like terroir in wine.

Ran Watte

Golden orange colour. Elegant structure, like a fine Champagne. Smooth, with a pinch of spiciness - and a fine aroma with some peach and other citrus fruit. The hint of spiciness has the same function as the crispness (from the chalk soil) that distinguishes Champagne from other sparkling wines.
