Unu Unu Tea Express.

Unu Unu Tea Express is a teeny tiny tea stall down Jaya Road, Bambalapitiya, that brews up some wonderfully flavoursome cuppas, with the addition of finest local spices. 

The Tea

Unu Unu Tea Express serves up two kinds of unu unu tea – Saffron (Rs. 100) and Cardamom (Rs. 100). We got one of each. 

This Saffron Tea was the winner of the evening. It's a cup full of warmth and comfort, really. A bold kahata note that binds so well to the frothy milk, it also had a dash of spices, including saffron, enriching the flavour and aroma. Plus, the sweetness was spot on. 

Loaded with cardamom as promised, this Cardamom Tea had the same excellent kahata kick. Unfortunately though, it was way too sweet for our liking.


It's a streetside tea stall, so no dine-in facilities are provided. However, at the moment, they're functioning as a drive-through outlet, as a precautionary method to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


Unu Unu Tea Express is another fantastic option in town to get your tea fix. We do wish that they had more varieties, but all in all, it was an enjoyable experience.
