Uda Pussellawa Tea Similar to Nuwara Eliya Tea Cup

The Uda Pussellawa tea region of Sri Lanka sits between 5000 and 6000 feet above sea level. And Uda Pussellawa is a small, thinly populated district almost entirely dedicated to tea cultivation. This area borders Nuwara Eliya’s upper part (which lies immediately to the west). As a result, the tea characters show Nuwara Eliya area tea.

The tea in Uda Pussellawa appears a bit darker in the cup, with a pinkish hue and a hint of greater strength.

The Uda Pussellawa Tea estates thus enjoy not one but two ‘quality seasons’, the western as well as the eastern. From June to September (peak period), the eastern quality season produces the best quality tea at Uda Pussellawa. The dry, cold conditions during this period produce a medium-bodied tea with a subtle character.

Heavy rainfall periods produce strong tea and darker liquor in the cup.

Uda Pussellawa produces a variety of leaf sizes and styles, reflecting the relatively broad range of altitudes at which its estates are situated.
