‘Ceylon Special’ by Ahmad Tea is the London-based brand’s flagship boutique in Colombo. The ambience of the outlet is quaint, with large pastel paintings creating a truly vintage Victorian aura. However, in traditional Sri Lankan style, shoppers are served cups of tea with jaggery.
There is a vast selection of tea and every blend at the outlet has its origins in Sri Lanka. Their range includes classic brews such as Earl Grey and English Breakfast, and regional teas from all tea-growing regions in the island. They have graded teas such as Ceylon Tea OPA and Ceylon Long Leaf as well as varieties of Green Tea. One of the highlights of the boutique is the enticing selection of flavoured teas. These include Lemon and Lime Twist, Strawberry Sensation, Vanilla and Peach and Passion Fruit.
Ahmad Tea offers a delightful range of packaging. As a globally renowned brand established in England, their fine blends are packed in artistic metal caddies with imagery representing key land- marks in England. Tall tins adorned with pretty Victorian motifs make for ideal gifts. Inspired by Sri Lankan tradition, tea is packaged in wicker baskets such as the Hambiliya or the Tea Wallet. Selections of Ceylon Tea are also available in bamboo boxes.
Staff are well-informed and assist in selecting a tea that suits you. Personalised tea-tasting can also be requested.
Ceylon Special by Ahmad Tea is the place to shop for premium Ceylon Tea or a personalised gift.
