Drinking your way through vintage Lipton's?

Postby mbanu » Apr 21st, '12, 06:36

Arnold Wright's 1907 Twentieth Century Impressions of Ceylon gives what seems to be a complete list of the Lipton's tea estates at the time... might be interesting to taste through. These were the (mostly) Uva teas that made Lipton's famous. :) I wonder how many still play a part in Lipton's blends?

The "Dambatenne Group" of estates:
Dambatenne
Maha Dambatenne
Bandara Eliya
Sunny Peak

The "Monarakande Group" of estates:
Leymastotte
Nahakettia
Upper Lyegrove

Other Uva estates:
Keenapitiya
Oakfield

Non Uva(?):
Pooprassie Group
Karandagalla
Panilkanda

I am guessing the fannings of teas from many of those estates still find their way into Liptons bags :lol:
