  • Adam's Peak is one of the most sacred mountains in the world.  It bares the mark of a giant footprint atop its peak.  This location has the unique distinction of being sacred to four of the worlds major religions. Muslims revere this holy site, for it is believed, Adam stood here on one foot for a thousand years after being exiled from Eden.  Hindus believe it to be the mark of Shiva; and some Portuguese Christians settlers claimed the mark was left by St. Thomas.  While Buddhist believe the real footprint lies beneath, on a bed of sapphire. Thousands of people ascend on a spiritual pilgrimage beginning on the December full moon.  The slopes surrounding this peak are blessed with the some of the most remarkable teas on earth.  The silver tips are  covered with fuzz and reveal a heady aroma, reminiscent of pine and honey.  The subtle taste may only be appreciated by an experienced palate. Cancer research has shown this tea has some of the highest known polyphenol content.  This rare white tea is limited to 1500 kilos per year.
