It's a common tea in Middle-Eastern groceries. I see nothing special to it. It is the Arabic counterpart of mass-produced black tea. Might also be found in East Indian groceries. Simply check in your area.

Looks like they want to get into producing Chinese and Japanese green teas from Sri Lanka:

Alwazah tea (shay alwazah شاي الوازاه) meaning "the swan tea" is just a brand of average grade ceylon black tea. There is nothing special about it but it's a good tea for using in black tea drinks like spiced tea which is common in the middle east. There are cheaper less known brands though for this purpose that are just as good.

It is common in Iraq to use this brand for cardamom (heil) tea with lots of sugar. But you can really use any type of similar black tea.
