The Dimbula area internationally recognizes for the quality of its teas in the N/Western season with high demand.
The season exhibits very clean bright & brisk teas, with a good coppery red color & in the case of the Golden Valley area a hint of a golden – Orange hue in tea.
The districts contain a number of sub-districts such as the Golden Valley, Maskeliya, Upper Kotmale, Ramboda & lower Dickoya.
Up to the 1970’s Dimbula & Dickoya were considered two separate districts. so, we consider them to be 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. Dimbula tea estates yield their best teas during this season.
