This single estate tea represents over 120 years and five generations of family tradition from a tea plantation managed by Francis Van Reyk, the great-great-grandfather of the family owners of Capital Teas. In the 1890’s, Van Reyk, managed the well-known Diyagama Estate in the Dimbula region of Ceylon (present day Sri Lanka). Unaware to him then, would be the five-generations of family tradition in tea that he would begin which is alive and well today on multiple continents.

Capital Teas proudly offers this high quality, BOP Ceylon tea which is directly imported from the very tea estate managed by Van Reyk in the 19th century. Bold and sophisticated, you will find this black tea to be pleasant on its own or with a touch of milk.

Dimbula Region Notes: Perhaps the most famous name associated with Ceylon tea. The plantations are located at 3,500 to 5,500 feet above sea level and cover the western slopes of the district. The monsoon rains and the cold, dry weather produce a range of teas, from full-bodied, to light and delicate.

Health Benefits:
  • Great Source of Antioxidants, which have been shown to lower the risk of heart disease
  • Black Tea has been shown to reduce cholesterol
  • May be an mentally stimulating beverage

Compares favorably... June 17, 2013
Reviewer: Paul F from Washington, DC United States  
...with Alta, an import brand I sometimes find in Asian or Halal markets. Often use Ceylon as a base for my own blends.

The base of my tea mix October 23, 2012
Reviewer: Charles Mayfield from Alexandria, VA United States  
I use a small small amount of Great Grandfather's Tea as a base along with one of my other Capital Tea's find teas. It always gives me a delicious cup of tea. Really appreciate the customer service I receive when ordering on-line.
