Rebel Tea by Mama D
A recipe created by Mama D in 1989 when Sri Lanka was engulfed by war and insurgence. Due to numerous hardships in the country, Dissa (one of our master tea makers) and family couldn’t get a cuppa for months. So Mama D headed out secretly & plucked tea leaves & adopting a traditional recipe lost for more than a century she created this special brew.
She sun-dried her hand-picked leaves, hand pounded them in a stone mortar, hand-rolled and fired on a traditional hearth.
Rebels Tea by Mama D is a s strong as she is.
The result is a full-bodied, ultra-strong cuppa, easy to drink with or without milk.
Available as loose leaf in our deli box, handmade fabric bag (made in the plantation village) or bulk refill bag.
