Dimbula Tea Region

Unique liquor at Dimbula Tea area

The Dimbula tea region of Sri Lanka sits between 3500 and 5000 feet above sea level. The Dimbula area is located between Nuwara Eliya and Horton Plains. The teas of the area are found to produce a distinctive flavor. Dimbula teas are characterized as “high-grown tea.” This area is internationally recognized for the quality of its teas in the N/Western season with high demand.

The season exhibits very clean, bright, and brisk teas, with a good coppery red color and, in the case of the Golden Valley area, a hint of a golden-orange hue in tea.

The districts are divided into several sub-districts, including the Golden Valley, Maskeliya, Upper Kotmale, Ramboda, and Lower Dickoya.

Up until the 1970s, Dimbula and Dickoya were considered two separate districts. So, we consider them separate for our purposes. The character of the tea is slightly different, with Dickoya generally having a slightly lighter liquor.

The aromatic qualities of tea increase during the western quality season between March and May. And, estates yield their best teas during this season.

The monsoon rain and the cold, dry weather produce a range of teas in the Dimbula area, from full-bodied to light and delicate. And, the unique liquor of Dimbula tea produces good quality English Breakfast tea and Irish Breakfast tea.
