Rishi's ceylon is from Vithanakande: http://www.rishi-tea.com/store/ceylon-s ... state.html

I've also had the one from The Silver Tips Tea Room: http://www.silvertipstea.com/fusionecom ... Estate_OP/

Without finding my tasting notes, I believe New Mexico Tea Co. also has it and it was one of the most bitter teas I've ever tried. Maybe it was just me, though. 8)

Thanks Space. Teastop had 2 grades of Vithanakande, I placed an order last night... along with my staples of meleng assam, golden yunnan, and keemun hao ya a. Hope they are the real deal, looks it from the pics...

I'll have to stop by Silver Tips sometime again, if at least to get some Makaibari 2nd Flush from the source... ;)
