The F.B.O.P.F.E.X.S from New Vithanakande is one of the best low-grown teas in Sri Lanka. Although it represents only 1% of the garden's production, this grade's finesse and aromatic richness have impressed connoisseurs over the last few years.

We are very pleased to announce that we have found an organic equivalent to New Vithanakande: Organic Ruby Ceylan, certified by Ecocert. We will no longer be offering New Vithanakande as we have chosen to offer an even more aromatic organic alternative.
