How is Basilur tea obtained?
The exquisite and unique taste of Basilur products is due to the high-quality Ceylon tea , which is gaining a reputation as the purest tea in the world. This is due to strict compliance with EU and ISO standards, where all pesticide levels are kept at a minimum. In addition, Ceylon teas are 100% hand-picked , a tradition perfected over the centuries. Thanks to this, only the best leaves are collected from the plants. Moreover, Ceylon tea gains its quality and richness of flavors thanks to the diversity of landscapes from which it comes. Therefore, at Basilur, we source tea from various areas of Sri Lanka such as Nuwara Eliya , Dimbula , Radella , Uva , Kandy and Ruhuna .
Tea bushes in Sri Lanka are distinguished by their resistance to weather changes , various soil conditions and variable height . Depending on the conditions in which the bushes grow and the harvest time, the resulting tea varies in taste . These differences are masterfully captured by our experienced tea tasters , helping them pay attention to the fine details of flavor and develop a consistent product.
